9. Ghosting and flares

The big front element which, additionally, is not hidden inside the casing and as many as 16 air-to-glass surfaces suggest that it is not an easy task to ensure the good work against bright light. The Zeiss constructors managed here decently well. Perhaps the performance is not as good as in the previous categories but still it cannot be called bad. It is very difficult to catch distinct, very bright flares. Even if you work with the lens wide open it is much easier to notice a general decrease of contrast than any flares. On stopping down the aperture the contrast improves significantly but in some positions of the light source inside the frame you can notice yellowish gleams of medium intensity.
