I have noticed the same problem and the strange thing is that it almost disappears if you turn your the cameras buttom up - not a very practical workaround. Have other seen that?

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.
