Personally, I think vignetting looks good. It's not about how well the lens makes the corners look, it's about how the subject looks. To my eye, the vignetting is a good way to de-emphasise the background and bring the centre of attention to the subject.


In this case, it makes the corners (and parts of the subject) look like gray mud. And it distracts greatly from the s subject.
