perhaps been a bit rough.

Well, the disbelief part was true, I always heard about 50/1.4
vignetting but never about 35L, and when I tested for it on my
50/1.4 it was there, but I never thought to check other lens
because I simply never really noticed it in normal usage. Which I
gathered to be your real point entirely : people don't normally
notice in during normal usage, thus why all the fuss ??? (and why
does that expensive L glass get a free pass too ???

So I had a revelation and stand better educated. Thanks to you for

That did not report light falloff at the corners wide open.
