Hi Juergen,

I don't have an IR filter in the correct size, but when I handhold a 58mm diameter Hoya R72 in front of the lens, I don't see an IR hotspot. I do see spots but those may be dust and light coming in around the filter edges. I think this lens behaves well, probably due to the improved coatings. The rear lens surface is pretty flat, so I think that a hotspot would already have been clearly visible.
