welcome to slr photography...you have just discovered vignetting! as you have just found out, it can be a pain and, as such, is one of the standard metrics by which lenses are judged...most lens testing sites measure vignetting. here's your lens on photozone:


you'll note quite high numbers wide open at 28mm. looks like it clears up nicely by f/8 so for landscapes, stop down and you should be ok.

in general, all lenses vignette to some degree. it's very common in ultra fast lenses and a lot of high ratio zoom lenses. luckily, it is quite easy to correct in post in an application like lightroom.
