    if you have a filter, remove it and try to shoot again.

    clean your lens and filters thoroughly first before shooting.

    i have the same problem with some of my night shots too..

    and wondering, a polarizer can prevent reflections, does it help in this case?

    No. Remove the filter. If you replace the UV filter with a polarizer, you still have the problem of internal reflections caused by a filter. So, as everyone here has advised, REMOVE THE FILTER. ANY FILTER.

    Condensation on a dirty lens / filter might cause this also... if you're just exit from an aircon room, wait around 30 mins before shooting.

    Yes, maybe your filter / lens is not clean. Remove the filter, clean the outer side of your front and rear lens, then shoot. If it's still there, there might be something inside.

    i also have the same problem with my 18-70mm and i havent quite be able to deal with it yet...tried taking off the filter but still see a bit of flare in the VF before taking the shot.
    i flip the lens aperature open but cant see any big dust speck inside the lens element, just very minor dust only.
