    Nikon D700 + 24-70/2.8 lens

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded to the D700 from the D90. I already had the 24-70/2.8 lens (which I love by the way).

    I've noticed though, that when I shoot at 24mm there is a substantial vignette. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

    A search of the net seems to reveal that this is indeed a problem, or as they put it, an "effect" with the 24-70 lens.

    Has anyone else had this problem, and know if there's any solutions?

    Cheers!

    Remove the lens hood, see how that goes, but it doesn't cause any issue on either of my FX bodies.

    With a full frame camera, if you shoot with the lens wide open (largest aperture), you'll tend to get some vignetting.

    You never noticed this with the D90 because that is a DX body and it only uses the centre portion of the lens.

    I find that if you close it down a stop or two, the effect is greatly reduced. But that isn't a real solution as you paid good money for that lens to shoot at f2.8!

    Thanks for the replies.

    Wayne, I originally thought that was the problem but I have tried without the lens hood and still have the same vignette occurring.

    DTW, Thanks for the advice. I guess I'll just have to adjust my way of shooting a touch to compensate. I totally know what you mean though!! It wasn't a cheap lens!

    I've just discovered that the lens correction in Lightroom really helps. Still a pain but at least it's a solution for now

    Dunno... I don't have a problem with the 24-70 on my D700
    & Lightroom is a simple answer

    I would expect that automatic lens correction in either the Nikon software or Lightroom/CS5/Camara RAW et al would fix that.

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    if the filter ring is thick, it may be contributing to your vignetting

    I'd be pretty annoyed if I'd bought a d700/24-70 2.8 to find it had vignetting...............minus point for FX!

    I think it could be your filter. You may need to remove completely, or go for a thin/low profile one.

    I agree, a UV filter does nothing on a DSLR, the anti-aliasing filter that sits right on top of your camera sensor has built in UV filtering. Take the UV filter off, you don't need it, and I reckon you will see the vignetting reduce considerably or disappear completely
