visible vignetting at 16mm even stopped down significantly

optical qualities aren't outstanding - could be better considering it's a professional lens (eg/ sharpness in the extremes)

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR is a high performance wide-angle zoom lens. This is the first ultra-wide-angle lens to feature optical image stabilization, in this case allowing up to 4 shutter speeds slower than what would otherwise be possible, creating a noticeably sharper image. A Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and interior flare, and 3 Aspherical Lens Elements work with 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements to reduce coma and other types of aberration. A rounded 9-blade diaphragm is used to create a narrow depth of field, bringing the subject into sharp focus and applying a natural blur to the background. The internal focus (IF) is set by a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), allowing fast and accurate autofocus with optional manual focus.
