The coatings are really good and flare is well controlled. Wide open there is always a hint of flare/coma/astigamtism and very low contrast, stopped down to 2.0 or 2.8 contrast ramps up and it delivers clear snappy shots, really impressive for such an old lens.

thafred your lens seems to control flare much better than mine. nice pics.
Funny it seems you're from Vienna too?
