Truth. It serves only as an inconvenience.

S1 jpg straight out of the camera. no NR.
lens is really sharp even wide open. but check out the vignetting (something i really don't mind at all).

original: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7114/7...6c9e2d_o_d.jpg

i think this was 1/60 or 1/125 and f/2.8 and iso 800. poor framing - i was trying to get him to laugh.

This is great for a $200 lens. I was looking for sample pics today and was wondering about the vignetting as well.

DPP or DxO will automatically correct the vignetting in RAW conversion, if you like.

Any suggestions how to take good fireworks pics in a very crowded place, where tripods are not allowed?

I don't have a monopod, and I can't bring one through security.

string on a 1/4-20 screw mounted to camera tripod hole, other end on something that will be snug under your foot/weight (like a fat 2" washer).
like Weebl said.

Find another fireworks display to shoot. Preferably one that isn't run by safety-nazis.
