8. Vignetting

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 body corrects many optical aberrations, including the vignetting. If you want to analyse precisely the influence of optics on that aberration you must check both JPEG and RAW files. The appropriate thumbnails are presented below.

The differences, fortunately, are not especially pronounced and most likely they stem from a slight cropping of the JPEGs field of view after the distortion correction. At the maximum relative aperture, when it comes to JPEG files, the vignetting reaches a moderate level of 21% (-0.67 EV). On stopping down to f/2.8 you see that aberration decrease to 15% (-0.46 EV). The problem disappears completely by f/4.0 where it amounts to just 6% (-0.19 EV).

In the case of RAW files, at the maximum relative aperture you must take into account the fact that the brightness loss will get to 28% (-0.96 EV). By f/2.8 that aberration decreases to the level of 22% (-0.71 EV). Similarly as in the case of JPEG files, the vignetting stops being bothersome at all by f/4.0 where it is just 10% (-0.32 EV).
