Does anybody notice the FZ10 has vignetting at full tele (420mm) with f-stop 2.8? I tried several shooting with/without the hood (including the phayee adaptor) and the results are the same. If I change the aperture to >= 4.6 the vignetting goes away. :?:

Does anyone else has the same phenomenon?

I have never seen it on my pics, if vignetting occurs it's normally only seen at full wide zoom and mostly coused by a thick filter or step ring + filter.

Here is an example taken at 35mm. Notice the obivous dark corner at the upper and lower left

The dark corners are more visible if adjusted by photoshop. (levels)

Here is a full tele photo (420mm) without any lens hood or filters attached.

Any idea?

i am a novice, but to me these pictures look fine, but again it's only 3 x4" on themy screen, so perhaps at full screen it looks more obvious, but right now i cannot see anything...

later

The dark corners are more obivous when viewing the pics in photoshop. I have darkened the whole picture and bring out the dark corners. See the circular shades around the pic? No lens hood attached.

Thx, but DPReview only mentioned the vignetting is visible at the wide angle. However I found vignetting is visible from wide to tele.

I have checked lots of FZ10 photos (wide to tele) from many soruces, I can say I am not the only one having the vignetting issue at f2.8.

Its not noticable for my eyes, I can't even see it without doing hard darkening with photoshop. Just keep shooting.

Your pictures look fine.

You should see the vignetting on the Canon S70 28mm widezoom I recently tested. Mama mia! Big blotched dark corners on all four sides at full wide.
