    Hazy Lens

    I have a VX1000J that's undergone a number of repairs, including service to the main board by VE with great results. It's been working fine, but day time footage, particularly when using the fisheye and especially when the sun directly hits the front element, looks very hazy. Lens flares aren't concise, rather they spread across the entire image and to some extent make it difficult to see what's happening in the image. My first suspicion is hazing in the lens.. when I first received this camera from Japan, the optics were unusable. I ordered a replacement VAP and switched the two successfully. The image is definitively sharper than before, but not very satisfactory. I also noticed some aberration around a subject wearing a white shirt on a sunny day. There's a slight bluish cast around the highlights. This occurred while not using the fisheye. My friend suggested a possible issue with the chips in the replacement VAP. Is it more likely this hazing and aberration is a result of pollution on the optical construction or possibly an issue with the CCDs? Also, would I experience any issues replacing the Japanese VAP with a known functional English VAP?
