Some, mostly right at landing. 

While the elevator is close to neutral it was hardly noticeable. Only when you kicked in a lot of back stick as you were getting to the flare would the light catch the top of the elevator as it was angled down. 

It was never bad and I could always clearly see the ground aft of the canard and the runway was WELL lit around the plane at touchdown and that was the goal. 

Now if we did not have those beautiful glossy white elevators... :-)
