    U can try over expose by 1-2 stops. Usually removes the vignetting

    As far as I know, Nikkor AIS lenses do NOT cause vignetting. Otherwise millions of Nikon film users would have protested.

    Did you use the wrong lens hood. Or stacked too many thick filters on top.

    the Nikon Ais lenses are design for film cameras, 35mm film format, have not hear about any vignetting issue,
    I own and use at least twenty over lenses before, didn't encounter this.

    I suspect is user problem.

    All lenses have some vignetting. It's inherent.

    Light falloff is inherent in all lenses, more so for wide aperture lenses. Ais 35/1.4 is a beautiful piece of glass.
