Re: Why is Window Glass So Bad to Shoot Through?

My guess is that window glass is not perfectly flat and that is what causes a lot of the problems.  Shooting at an angle to the glass makes things worse.  Dirt on the window doesn't seem to make much of a difference provided the front of the lens is very close to the glass and the target is some way off.

I posted this comparison a few years ago:
