Default D70 Kit lens vignetting and barrel distortion

managed to take several pics with the kit lens. First impression: sharp and quiet, very good.

downloaded the pics and found out significant barrel distortion and vignetting/light falloff at the corners for shotsat 18mm/f3.5. quite disappointed with the kit lense. ruined good landscape pics. retest the kit lens; took pics of my door frame...pics looked like minor fish eye shots

anyway, are these two probs were regarded as 'normal' for the wide angle lens? i know that these two probs can be corrected by post processing but it would be such a hassle to do that each time after i used the kit lense.

i was thinking to sell the kit lense and get Tamron 17-35 Di. any input appreciate very much.
