  • Canon 5Diii + 100-400L black corners in pix

    Hi Folks,
    I've noticed shadows/black corners appearing on photos from my Canon 5Diii & Canon 100-400L lens...especially on bright sunny days.
    With lens hood on or off, focal length used, seems to make no difference.

    Any body else had same issue or got a solution?

    Many thanks
    Dave

    Not as bad as I was expecting from your post. What aperture was this shot at ?
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

      I have the same issue using a 5D III. The full frame sensor will show up any Vignetting which is less likely to be picked up using a cropped sensor. I find that lens profile correction in Camera Raw is pretty good at sorting the problem.

      The best solution is new lenses, if you have deep enough pockets.

        Happens on the 6D too with a 100-400.....it's the nature of the game with full frame sensors. Things are much improved when I use a 70-200 + 1.4x converter although that doesn't give you 400mm.

          I use a proper camera (Nikon !! ). Only kidding, Sorry...blame Gerardo !

          ....but I thought the excellent Canon 100-400L was designed for full frame use ?

          ....and then I read this excellent review....

            The photo was shot at f/7.1. As mentioned above, using a FF sensor will ALWAYS bring you vignetting, no matter what lenses you are going to use. Some lenses have less, some more vignetting.

            However, you can reduce vignetting. The trick is to use smaller apertures. Try f/8.0 or smaller (i.e. higher number). Then, use the lens correction on your Canon or Adobe photo editor and it will be almost invisible.

              This. I wouldn't particularly call vignetting an issue, especially when shooting RAW as it is easily corrected automatically any time you open a RAW file in ACR (or any other RAW programme).
