9. Ghosting and flares

As for working against bright light, we’ll find some more reasons to complain. The front lens, although it’s small, is not screened from the side by anything, which may cause the effects we present in the pictures below. At the maximum aperture we were able to easily catch a characteristic blue glow in the corner opposite the one with the bright source of light. Once we strongly stopped down the lens, we were dealing with a violet streak that changed its shape and intensity depending on the position of the Sun in the frame.
