I received my new AF-S 14-24 from Adorama this weekend and find the wide field of view a lot of fun to work with. However, there seems to be some vignetting at the 14mm focal length and aperture at f/2.8 with my D700. The vignetting falls off, but does not completely disappear, at the 24mm focal length. I do not have vignette control turned on in my camera.
My questions are:
1. Is this normal? There are rave reviews about this lens everywhere and no mention of vignetting.
2. Does this have something to do with the lens-camera combination? Would it go away with a D800 for instance?
3. I have the latest firmware in my D700. Is it a software issue?
4. Am I just noticing this because everything else is so great now?
5. Is it my copy of this lens?

I've attached an outdoor example and an indoor example. Thanks in advance for your comments.
P. S. - For some reason the metadata didn't come through. Both images are at 14mm and f/2.8.
