9. Ghosting and flares

We report that the Nikkor 18-135 mm has officially joined the kaleidoscope family. As a result it now joins the ranks of such lenses as Canon's 28-135 mm or the 70-200 mm f/4L, which when working against bright light produce a whole range of colorful artifacts. The situation is not different at all with the Nikkor. At wide angle, the lens produces a whole range of patterns, which can be seen in the picture below.

Fortunately, the situation improves for longer focal lengths. The number of flares decreases, the intensiveness - not always. For 35 mm, you sometimes even get a little "ghost".
