Sony E 16 mm f/2.8 - Vignetting


As you can notice, distinct vignetting occurs regardless of the degree of stopping down. At the maximum aperture it is as much as 47% (-1.9 EV) which is a high value. Further stopping down makes the vignetting keep the level from –1.1 EV to –1.2 EV (about 34%). Small dimensions of the lens and the wide angle of view make themselves felt here. However, the lens can be neither praised nor criticized for it – it is the price we must pay for the combination of such factors as parameters, dimensions of the lens and a quite huge detector of the APS-C/DX class.
