Not too shabby Den. Did you have vignetting compensation turned on in the body?

Yeah, all three were set to auto.

Though the shading (vignetting) correction seems to only partially correct the vignetting (same as my Tamron 28-75 lens).

Thanks for putting these up - very decent performance. The corners wide open are certainly better than I expected, and very good at f/8.  Looks a good buy to me!

Yeah I agree.

I must admit I was pleasantly surprised how sharp it is wide open, especially the edges and corners. I'm very happy about that.
