9. Ghosting and flares

In this category the tested Canon didn’t impress us. We didn’t expect any problems for a lens with small field of view and good quality multi-layer anti-reflecting coatings. At 100 mm focal length, when working in bright light, we receive all kinds of flares and blinks. Even at the 300 mm focal length the contrast decreases clearly (which is actually typical) and there is visible exaggerated coloring. The examples of the Canon’s behaviors in this category can be observed below.
