This is an image straight out of the camera with my 40-150 2.8 pro. Vignetting is obvious in this image. The shot was wide open at 2.8 and I was at maximum zoom. I would expect this at the wide end not the long end. Is this common for this lens and would stopping down help mitigate the effect? I should say that I don't notice it if the frame is 'busy', but shots like this where there is a lot of empty frame the vignetting really jumps out. Anybody else experience this with this lens?

Awww, that's not really so bad. :D I don't own that lens, but I wouldn't expect vignetting to be something that changes due to "copy variation"... there is, however, the question of whether in-camera correction is enabled or not. In my E-PL7 this setting is called "shading compensation", and it's found in the section with color/WB settings... I don't remember if it's on by default or not, but might be worth a check. My experience is that this software correction doesn't try to fully correct the falloff, though... just mitigates it somewhat.

Thanks for that. I'll explore the menu later today or tonight.

Are you using an Olympus camera, with automatic lens correction, including vignetting ?

Go to your Menu G & set Shading Comp. to ON & then it should not be noticed. If you save RAW then it will embed it in the file too.
