Funny that you consider the vignetting a "HUGE" problem. The lens

Assuming that you mean EF-S instead of EF, where does it say that
the OP is using it on a FF camera?

No. I absolutely mean EF on FF. (EF-S on FF is nonsense)

Any EF lens on FF will give considerable vignetting as well when used wide open. We don't see that on cropped sensor, because it only uses the center part. Sure, that's an advantage of using EF lenses on cropped sensors.

But this "huge" vignetting problem of the EF-S was considered totally acceptable in the last few decades when using EF lenses on FF bodies.

BTW... At f/4, the EF-S 17-55 has the same level of vignetting as the 17-40L.
