Pentax smc DA* 55 mm f/1.4 SDM

9. Ghosting and flares

At maximum aperture the work against bright light is good. The situation gets worse together with stopping down, making light artifacts easily noticed at around f/8.0. The expensive Pentax with praised SMC coatings shouldn’t produce such effects.
