Tokina AT-X PRO FX SD 16-28 mm f/2.8 (IF)

9. Ghosting and flares

The Tokina 16–28 mm, like many wide angle models of that producer, doesn’t perform well against bright light. The number of light artifacts you can observe in photos is really huge: from multicoloured ‘ghosts’ of different shapes through vertical or point-like flares which overexpose the whole image to severe veiling flare that takes almost the whole frame. What’s more, those artifacts tend to appear not only when the sun is situated within the frame. You can put the sun far away and still they might spoil your photo. Even if you point your camera downward at your feet you still can catch some of those.

Criticizing the Tokinas for ghosting and flares becomes boring…I wonder when their optics specialists and engineers finally learn how to deal with that problem.
