Nikon Nikkor AF 24 mm f/2.8D

8. Vignetting

We were very curious how the tested lens would fare in this category because we remembered weak results of 20 mm Canon and Nikon devices, which, by f/2.8, had the brightness loss in the frame corners of as much as 32%. Fortunately the Nikkor 2.8/24 performs better here. When wide open, it shows the vignetting on the level of 23% (-0.77 of f-stop). The problem stops being noticeable by f/4.0 where it decreases to 10% and it disappears practically completely by f/5.6 (7%).

These results are perhaps not entirely bad but they are also nothing to boast of. When you compare them to those of the Sigma 1.8/24 you can find out that the vignetting level of the Sigma and the Nikkor at the maximum relative aperture is practically the same. The problem is that the Nikkor’s maximum relative aperture is f/2.8 and that of the Sigma – f/1.8. The Sigma stopped down to f/2.8 doesn’t show almost any vignetting at all.
