I just purchased a Nikon D810 with a 24-120mm f4 lens.  I am getting vignetting on the images. I've attached 2 images, one with the 24-120mm and the other with a 18-35mm Nikkor lens.  All are FX, never purchased a DX lens.  This is the second D810, returned the first one to B&H because of the same thing.  Nikon support said to reset the camera which I did.  No change.  Any feedback.  Getting annoyed that I need to send the second one back.

Thanks,

Kevin

The 24-120 is well known for vignetting, the 18-35 (both the current and the old D version) vignettes too. The D810 sensor will always show that vignetting, no matter how many cameras you return because of a lens flaw. The vignetting is easily corrected in post in most software by just applying standard lens corrections for the lens.

In my experience, most lenses will exhibit some degree of vignetting.

The cheaper D610 has a vignetting control option in it's menus (which I have turned off). I don't have a D810 but I would be surprised if that camera didn't also include such an option. That said...

 

Peter is right. It's the lens, and you'll see the same thing with at least a number of other Nikkors. I imagine that if you're shooting blank walls and don't want to correct ... either in camera or in post, then you have a problem. However, again... with my much cheaper D610, it hasn't been that much trouble. And, I use some lenses that are well known for vignetting.

I should add that if you shoot in jpg or use Capture NX-D or ViewNX-i for your conversions from .nef, you will get the benefit of turning lens corrections on in-camera. Third-party software don't read that setting, so you will have to activate the corrections in post if you use something else.

About the only other thing one can do to reduce vignetting is to stop down. The closer a lens is to wide open, the more noticeable vignetting will be. In most cases, you should see an improvement around mid apertures.
