Vignetting can be troublesome only at the maximum relative aperture where its value amounts to 38% (-1.38 EV). When we stop down the aperture to f/2.8 this aberration decreases to the level of 16% (-0.51 EV) and by f/4.0 it becomes completely imperceptible (8%).

Tamron SP AF 60 mm f/2.0 Di II LD (IF) Macro 1:1 - Vignetting


Because of good fastness the Tamron has an evident advantage over its immediate not full frame rival. The Canon EF-S 2.8/60 by f/2.8 got the result of 38% so exactly like the Tamron by f/2.0. The tested lens would have difficult time competing with full frame 60 mm class lenses for a change. The Nikkor AF 60 mm f/2.8D at the maximum relative aperture showed the brightness loss in the frame corners only of 12%.
