1) Light falloff (vignetting) is a HUGE problem, not just in the
corners but even along the edges. It's definitely very noticeable
in the images, especially those with a bright blue sky. Honestly,
this is the worst I've ever seen of all of the lenses I've ever

I guess you mean at f2.8? This is normal for any fast lens and is no where near as bad as a fast lens on a full frame camera. On full frame cameras you get black corners from a lot of lenses, not just fall off.

A sigma 30mm looks worse, more than a stop fall off, than the 17-55 and the 60mm macro at f2.8 has some fall off.

I guess your advice might be not to shoot landscapes at f2.8 and then it wont be noticable.
