We could argue that other 50's have similar or worse vignetting but at $600 I would expect a bit of over-engineering in the diameter to reduce it a bit. I mean it isn't like they have to worry about weight since the lens already weighs 420g. I mean it is a nice lens but I can buy a lot of guppies for $600. Btw bit surprise the price/performance is 5 stars given the price - or maybe things are just expensive in nikon world.
The vignetting is mostly a product of the sensor and the angle the light hits the microlenses at f1.8, rather than an under engineered diameter.
The (worse) Sony 55mm f1.8 costs more in Sony world....
