    I have an ETRSi and want to upgrade the system w/either a 50mm f/2.8 or 60mm f/2.8 PE lense.Can anyone tell me how well either of these lenses control light fall off-vignetting-in the corners and at what aperture vignetting is no longer an issue.Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you will have any problems with vignetting with either lens. A friend has the Etrsi and never had any problems.

    I've got the 40mm and the 60mm PE lenses and theyre both fantastic - vignetting is certainly not a problem if your using the proper lens hoods.

    I use the 50mm extensively and never had any problems with vignetting, not even when full opened. Bronica lenses are top of the line and not utterly expensive secondhand.

    Vignetting I've not found to be a problem. I do not consider
    my 60 or 75 to be f2.8 but a good 1/2 stop slower. So my
    wide open, f4. I think that normal. Indicated lens speeds
    and actual are often not the same. Dan
