Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 STM

9. Ghosting and flares

On the one hand we hoped that using new coatings would improve the transmission and the lens would perform perfectly well against bright light. On the other hand, though, we are aware that coatings are not the only factor here. The front element of the new model seems to stick out of the casing a tad more; that fact can influence the lens’s work in the contrasted lighting conditions.

The photos below seem to suggest that our worries were justified and the newer construction’s performance against bright light is even weaker than that of the older one. It is not a bad performance, mind you, because the strongest flares are visible when the sun is situated firmly inside the frame; with an angle of view of less than 50 degrees it is not a common situation. Still we have to admit we expected something better.
