Flare and Ghosts

This is just a brief report on the Nikon 50mm 1.8 E Series, and its flare and ghost characteristics.

Note also the thread and hair, left behind by the ‘lint-free’ glass-cleaning cloth. That’s what I get for trying to dry negatives with cloth… (I found a better method: more on that in a bit: stay tuned).

The little pancake style E Series 50 is really a top notch little lens, and I’m very pleased with it. I just thought someone out there might like to see what’s possible with it, flare and ghost-wise.Nikon FG in Aperture mode, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 E Series, Lomography Color 100, processed at home, scanned with the Scan-O-Matic 7000, and processed in Lightroom 5.
