Venus Optics LAOWA 100 mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO

9. Ghosting and flares

In the chapter concerning build quality of the tested lens we noticed its inner tube which was not properly matted and, overall, too shiny and too smooth for our liking. When a ray of light enters it, it gets reflected several times and neither an aperture nor any other parts of inner construcion are able to stop it. The photographic results might be lamentable. In some configurations you have to deal with huge light artifacts which can spoil the whole frame. What's more, moving the source of bright light far away from the frame corner not always helps; sometimes reflections in the opposite corner can still be bothersome.

We feel that in this category the constructors of the lens have a lot of room for improvement - buying some matt paint of good quality might be a good start...
