This paper presents veiling glare of various types of current lenses-wide angle, standard, telephoto, and zoom; introduces the effect of reflection in camera bodies; and proposes criteria for the assessment of veiling glare. Veiling glare does not differ significantly with focal lengths of lenses, but differs appreciably between manufacturers: less than 1% to more than 10%. The increase in veiling glare due to the reflection in a camera body differs with manufacturers: less than 1% to several percent. According to the results of comparison of the measured veiling glare values with actual pictures taken by lens-and-camera systems under test, the following criteria correspond very well to the actual photographic performance: veiling glare of not more than 1.5%, very good; between 1.5% and 3%, usually good; between 3% and 6%, usually poor, more than 6%, poor.
