9. Ghosting and flares

In the case of fisheye lenses good cooperation between coatings and the construction of inner tubes is very important when it comes to flares. With such wide angles of view it is difficult to avoid bright light falling on the convex front element at different angles especially when you are taking photos during a sunny day. The lens constructors faced quite a challenge here. As you can notice looking at photos below, in the case of the Canon 8-15 mm they managed to carry out that task well. Light artifacts are sometimes noticeable but their number is not high and they are weak. As the difficulty level in this category is very high, the assessment of the lens’s performance can be only positive.
