Hi all,

I have just looked at some of my photos I took with my super wide angle lens and i noticed (its impossible to miss) that huge areas around the sides of the image look like they have been stretched and are difficult to make out. Is this vignetting? is there anything i can do to avoid this or have i just got a rubbish wide angle lens?

Thanks,
Stumpy

stop down. that usually removes vignetting. all lenses vignett to some degree. It's what you can accept.

are you sure this isn't just the fisheye effect of the lens ? how wide is it ?

check the wikipedia for vignetting. They have a few good examples.
