Lesmore, I'm certainly not an expert on this issue either, but I do believe the dimensions of the lens are the cause of the shadow. According to that photo's exif data the lens was set to 23 mm, so it was nowhere near it widest setting. The kit lens, which is much smaller in physical dimensions, has never cast a shadow even when zoomed out all the way to 18 mm.

Having said that, I hope someone who knows more about this will correct me if anything I've put here is wrong.
