I'm thinking that maybe the OP doesn't have the lens corrections on? Here are some I took at the dog park today and didn't see such vignetting. These are straight out if the camera Jpegs (figuring out what to do about Raw files until Aperture catches up). Pls keep in mind these are just test shots and certainy won't win any awards for composition, etc. Shutter speed and technique could stand some improvement but I was pretty impressed with the camera overall...


Also the OP stated that he didn't think the autofocus was faster than NEX-6. While I can't speak to that I can certainly say that it's in a different league than my NEX-7 and much faster than my former Canon 7D and 5DMkII.

I note that in your photos there is little or no panning involved. Have you taken any shots similar to mine, where panning is required?

i was actually posting examples where I was challenging the camera by getting series of the dog coming toward the camera requiring constant update of distance. I was moving the camera to keep up but not really panning. Plus I tend to like the look of the dog head on more so than a 'broadside'. I figure panning would test me more so than the camera and right now the  discussion is on the camera's capabilities, no?
