9. Ghosting and flares

It is interesting that the 18-55 mm class kit lenses cope quite well with work against bright light. In the case of Canon devices, a model without stabilization fared the best and after adding that feature the quality of performance deteriorated. Here we might expect better results because Canon boasted of using better coatings. You can say slight improvement is noticeable. At shorter focal length the flares are similar but in the middle of the range the performance of the new lens is better. If you look at the results at 55 mm focal length you can notice the same characteristic little circle that we caught testing the predecessor. Now it is definitely less intensive.
