8. Vignetting

Glancing at the thumbnails, shown below, you can find out how the vignetting looks in photos taken with the Olympus E-PL1 camera.

Voigtlander Nokton 42.5 mm f/0.95 - Vignetting


At the maximum relative aperture you deal with a huge value of 57%(−2.44 EV). On stopping down to f/1.4 the vignetting decreases to 38% (−1.40 EV) – it is a result by 11% better than that of the PanaLeica. The light fall-off in the corners becomes moderate by f/2.0, where it reaches 16% (−0.50 EV), and it stops being a problem by f/2.8 where it is just 5% (−0.14 EV). Both these results are by several percent better than the results we got with the significantly bigger Leica 1.2/42.5.
