9. Ghosting and flares

What’s interesting and important as well the Panasonic 12-60 mm has the least problems with ghosting and flares at the shortest focal length. It’s the right approach – photos taken at wide angle of view often feature the sun positioned near one edge of the frame.

At longer focal lengths there are more problems but only if you put the sun inside the frame. If you move it outside the corner the artifacts become smaller and by shifting the sun a bit farther you can make them disappear completely.

In this category the Panasonic 12–60 mm fares better than its direct rival, the Olympus 12–50 mm.
