8. Vignetting

The thumbnails, showed below, are the proof of significant vignetting. Fortunately on stopping down we see it decreasing very quickly.

At the maximum relative aperture the brightness loss in the frame corners amounts to as much as 40% (-1.48 EV). This value is really huge for a DX format sensor. By f/4.0 the vignetting is already much lower, only 29%, and by f/5.6 it becomes imperceptible (7%).
