There is no EXIF data on your second photo so I have no idea whether the vignetting is normal or not. Here are two examples from my z612 which has the same lens but slightly different sensor. The 1st photo is at 35mm equiv. f/2.8 which is worst case vignetting. The 2nd photo at 78mm f/5.1 an the vignetting is largely gone. This is normal behaviour for super-zooms as a class.

Yes Smith the vignetting in the first photo that you have is same with my Z712 IS. I am bit releived by your explanation and looking into the 2nd photo. So it seems its not only happening with Kodak but it happens with wide zoom cameras. Please rectify me if I am wrong.

Thanks a lot for your help.

That vignetting is common with that class of camera, so much so that Steve's camera tests don't comment on it anymore. It can be controlled somewhat by stopping down the lens to f/5.6 if you have enough light.
