In addition, light can also reflect from the sensor back onto the elements of the lens and back to the sensor once more.

Diffraction is a different beast and usually does not come into play until you get above F13

Troy,

If you are talking about lens diffraction, you are correct in that it is different than lens flare.

I was talking about sensor diffraction which was something I was unaware existed.

I shot with my D60 from December 08 to June 10. I would have definately noticed ANY green flare from my shots, considering that there is green flare is nearly every one of my shots that are taken now.

How can it therefore be the lens?

An update for those that care. A few weeks back I exchanged it, and the new body now shows no signs of any green tint from headlight flare. Which means it was indeed the sensor, and means that I am probably going to return my filter and get my 50 bucks back!

Thanks to all who helped,

Alec
