I acutally like a little vignetting here and there, especially when shooting at a low DOF. It is easilly corrected in Photoshop if you shoot RAW.

What I can't abide is the "flare" or Chromatic Aberation. Having used the lens for a little over two weeks, the problem is clearly visible on 8x10 prints. This is not a matter of pixel peeping - in bright sunlight, in areas of high contrast, the lens (or at least my lens) produces unacceptable results.

Look for yourself along the left and top edge of this flower. This was shot RAW, converted with no correction, no sharpening and a slight reduction in contrast.
