Tamron SP 45 mm f/1.8 Di VC USD

9. Ghosting and flares

When it comes to flares I admit honestly I expected a better performance. The front element of the Tamron 1.8/45 is slightly hidden inside the barrel which acts as a kind of a hood. Apart from that the Tamron boasts excellent coatings and it has less air-to-glass surfaces than e.g. the Sigma A 1.4/50 or the Zeiss Otus. In spite of all that the flares can be caught – they are clearly visible especially on stopping down the aperture, even if the sun is firmly outside the frame.

These results are not very bad and the lens definitely shouldn’t be criticized harshly; they are closer to an averagely good performance but, as we expected something better, we were slightly disappointed.
