The Tamron 55-200 mm is a telephoto lens with narrow angles of view so the correct construction and anti-reflection coatings should have damped down inner reflexes very efficiently, as it is the case e.g. for the Nikkor 55-200 mm. Unfortunately something went wrong there and, as a result, we didn’t have any problems with getting characteristic light artifacts when working against bright light. Additionally, the important thing is that these artifacts are visible at 55 mm as well as at 200 mm; it can be seen in the photos below.
