Any lens will flare regardless of how 'modern' or well coated it is under certain conditions (if pointed directly into the sun, etc) I've used both lenses and I doubt you will be able to tell the difference optically. The Fujinon may (I believe) have a slightly larger image circle...(or is it the other way around.. You will be very pleased with either

Fuji lenses tend to be very slightly warmer than Nikkor lenses, but you would be unlikely to see any difference unless you made a direct comparison test. Optically both are excellent. The lastest Fuji lenses with the EBC coating may be less prone to flare.
