HORRIBLE vignetting with FF DSLRs

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by RichA, Feb 6, 2007.

  1. I'd say it's time that whoever took this photograph removed the filter from
    the front of the lens.
    Vignetting of this sort is typical of wide-angle lenses with filters with
    mounts too think for the lens, or perhaps trying to use a lens hood in front
    of the filter.

  2. I guess this is an object lesson in the need to ruthlessly edit your
    work. This poor photographer has put several hundred excellent shots on
    his website. Some unbalanced geek has spotted a significant error in one
    (the other was barely noticeable) and the world spends ages discussing
    the fault. I don't recall anyone else actually commenting on the
    hundreds of good photos.

    So, edit your work, or the NG harpies will tear you to pieces!

    You need to save the file on to your computer, and open it with an EXIF
    viewer that reads all of the fields.

    Really? How useless! No wonder his gallery sucks. Geesh - people pay
    all that money for a camera that's been defeatured. Thank goodness pro
    cameras like my coolpix aren't the same.

    oops - change that - EXIFRead didn't read it.
    PTLens did.
    With the other (telephoto) image PTLens identifies it as a 28-300
    f3.5-5.6 EF L @ 200mm.

    You are talking rubbish. We see this all the time and you can't blame
    it on a lens hood.
    Reviews SAID that the 17-40L (for instance) has FIVE STOPS of light
    fall off at the edge of the frame with
    FF Canons. In addition, one of those shots is with a 200mm lens!
    What did he do, put a foot long lens hood on it??

    Rich, you are the one talking rubbish. You don't have the lens, have never
    used the lens, and probably have no intention of finding out if the rubbish
    you spew is based in fact. The dark, and sharp, edges of the alleged
    vignetting show that it is not light fall off, it is something blocking the
    light.
    Show me a review, other than yours, that shows 5 stops of light falloff.
    You can't, because it doesn't exist. 1-2 stops is all anyone reputable has
    come up with.
    The second shot is not vignetting, either. As I said, it looks as if the
    photographer is shooting through something, like vertical blinds. I've
    gotten a similar effect when shooting through a chain link fence, but
    square, rather than just on the sides.
    Keep showing how much of a fool you are, Rich, you have absolutely no
    credibility. Even Rita doesn't give you any, he just takes it as an
    opportunity to spout more about the Nikkor.

    This poor photographer has put several hundred excellent shots on
    Agreed, some great shots in there.
    Agreed, RichA has shown his "balance" again and again in this forum.

    Take RichA's commentary with an enormous grain of salt.

    Go out with your 5D (you do own one, right?) take your 17-40L lens
    (you do own one, right?)
    take a shot of a uniform area like the sky, -1 stop down with the lens
    set at f5.6, f4.0 and f2.8.
    Then pretend there is no vignetting.

    He said he's never seen a reputable review showing more than one or two
    stops.
    You know, Rich, it's pretty easy to pretend you're right when you argue
    against things nobody has said.
    -Or perhaps you can show me where Skip said there is zero vignetting?

    No, I do not have a 17-40, I have a 5D and a 16-35. I've posted links to
    images shot with the combination, wide open and stopped down to f8. I never
    said there was no vignetting, I said that what was in that image was not
    vignetting, it appears to be a misaligned lens hood. Is your reading
    comprehension really that bad?
    Just in case you don't remember those links I posted, and I know you looked
    at them, because you commented on them, they are:
    http://www.pbase.com/skipm/image/50900668
    And:
    http://www.pbase.com/skipm/image/50900669
    And avoid the implication that I don't have the equipment in question, since
    you don't, and you don't shoot any images of consequence with the equipment
    in question, you really shouldn't go there.

    Don't assume anything...
    My Panacansamkony V13.9 ultra has more pixels than a 5d, and the lens
    was made by - well it has the name from - some german outfit recently
    saved from bankruptcy, and I can SMS from it too - though with my
    eyesight and fat fingers I've gotta use the plug-in keyboard. For
    backup I've got an SD14. I long for nothing.

    Too bad the EXIF data doesn't record what filter was mounted! The second
    image sure looks like a filter is vignetting
