18-135 question

Have a new K3. I noticed the other day that a couple of my images with the 18-135 have some darkness in the upper left hand corner. I use the lens hood. Any idea shy I am seeing this?

Thanks.

Could just be the normal vignetting. can you post a sample?

The 18-135 has extreme vignetting at 135mm.

Set up your camera pointing at a white wall. Set the lens to 135mm with the lens hood on. Take a picture. Take off the lens hood. Take another picture. Compare these two pictures for any difference as to vignetting in the corners. Your answer will be there in front of you!

When I run DXO lens corrections, I can see it lighten the corners on the 18-135 all the time.
