Re: Nikon 14-30/4 S image thread


Yeah, the vignetting looks as bad as anything I have seen from Nikon on a lens in this price range. That drop-off looks to be at least 1 stop, probably closer to two. I don't recall any of the early reviewers calling this out, was I not paying attention?

Hard to say much about corner smearing from the images posted so far. My lens is on the way, had such high hopes...

Lots of vignetting and corner smearing at f4. Goes to show even the large mount can't make up for not having a large, bulbous front element, which usually improves corner sharpness and brightness wide open. I am glad to see Nikon did not bake lens corrections permanently into the RAW files, though.
