The performance in this category is the same, no matter whether on smaller or bigger sensor. At the maximum relative aperture the flares are not very visible - you can catch some weak colourful arcs but only in specific conditions. When you stop down the aperture the problem increases slightly. In the corner opposite to the source of bright light you can notice a light artifact of medium intensity.

Overall it is not a perfect behaviour but the situation can’t be called bad either as the final mark is rather above average.
