Photographic proof from some product test shots taken a long while back. Whether you wanna call it ghosting or internal lens flare, even a top end filter can and does degrade image quality.
I think that is flare. Ghosting is a mirrored image of a source of light that appears diagonally opposite of it in the frame.

Flare/ghost-image & protection are 2 separate issues. Why keep mixing them up?
