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.

If you don't mind correcting vignetting in Photoshop, you should consider correctiing chromatic aberation in ACR as well. ACR does a good job removing both red/cyan and blue/yellow color fringing. Yeah, it's annoying that it's there at all, but it's just like vignetting--you can remove it for those few shots that you want to print at large sizes.
