8. Vignetting

On the one hand a small Micro 4/3 sensor is a very serious advantage in the optics’ struggle against vignetting. On the other hand a narrow tube can suggest that some problems might still occur. Let’s glance at thumbnails below.

You can notice the brightness loss in the frame corners at the maximum relative aperture without any problems. Our measurements indicate that its value amounts to 32% (-1.10 EV) there. Fortunately the problem disappears completely on stopping down the lens to f/4.0 because then the vignetting is just 9% (-0.28 EV). As the body doesn’t correct the lens’s distortion (there’s nothing to correct, after all) it doesn’t ‘touch’ the vignetting either so the results you get for JPEG and RAW files are very similar to each other.
