8. Vignetting

When you attach the tested lens to a body with the DX sensor you can forget about vignetting. It is proven by thumbnails below and also by our measurements.

Even at the maximum relative aperture the vignetting is not bothersome because it amounts to 19% (-0.62 EV). On stopping down to f/2.8 that aberration becomes imperceptible because it decreases to the level of 8% (-0.24 EV).

It can be a problem only at the maximum relative aperture where it reaches 32% (-1.10 EV). Already on stopping down by one full stop that aberration decreases to a not bothersome level of 18% (-0.59 EV) and it disappears completely by f/4.0 where it reaches just 12% (-0.37 EV).
