9. Ghosting and flares

As long as you work near the maximum relative aperture the flares won’t be very bothersome. Very serious problems start when you decide to stop down. Then, practically at all focal lengths, you will get a whole series of flares and a lot of small artifacts. Unfortunately they won’t go away when the sun is moved outside the frame - perhaps they become less intensive but still they make themselves felt. In this category the lens has its first more serious slip-up. The usage of the hood, added in the box, seems to be simply compulsory.
