Sigma 150 mm f/2.8 on Canon full frame

I bought this Sigma 150 mm APO lens about 3 years ago. I wanted to have something with less chromatic problem compare to my older lenses. I'm very satisfied with this lens, but don't use it at full aperture, I set it to f/4 to get it sharper and less vignetting.

Sigma 150 mm f/2.8 APO vignetting

In center the signal is about 66'000 and at the corners about 33'000. The signal drop 50 % at the corners which is pretty much. It's is the same as if you only have half the exposure in the corners and then more noise at corners.

Signal drop at corners relative center = 50 % or 1 EV (full frame sensor).

Even if the vignetting is high it's one of the better lenses I have. See my astrophotos I have of M45, taken with both Sigma APO 150mm and Pentax 67 165 mm.
