When using my D70 camera with the built-in speedlight and Sigma 12-24mm DGHSM lense I get the shadow (half circle)on the closest edge of the photo. The shadow is bigger as the angle is wider. It can not be seen until the flash fires. The same lense without flash makes no shadows. Other lenses don't make any shadows with or without flash.
The problems occured two weeks ago when the guy in the photo-shop was playing a bit with my camera (changing some settings to show me some effects) - I noticed that only after leaving the shop (and the city!) and I am wondering what is causing the problem...
Does anybody know what happened here? Thanks in advance!
