9. Ghosting and flares

If you work near the maximum relative aperture the flares can be caught mainly when the sun inside the frame. On significant stopping down the situation changes – there are no problems when the sun is inside the frame but when you move it right outside you can register a big flare illuminating the whole corner which then turns into a net of radial beams.

When it comes to the rivals, the Canon 1.8/50 STM and the Sonnar 1.8/50 FE had a tad more problems. The performance of the Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8G for a change was an example to follow – that lens dealt with bright light splendidly.
