This is the only category where the element defect influence became visible. For particular frame and sun positions you could obtain visible artifacts even on a small 20D sensor, whereas, for minimally different positions, there were no flares or artifacts at all, even on the 5D. It became clear, that the different aberrations were caused by the way the sunlight was reflected by the defect; it was independent of the used detector size.

If it wasn’t for the lens’s defect, the overall lens performance in this category could be assessed very well; even with the defect it can’t be criticized.
