Sorry, you're not providing enough information about your problem.

At any rate, the only way to really know how much it will cost to fix is to send the camera in to Canon UK factory service and let them figure up an estimate for you.

Also, keep in mind that ALL lenses will vignette a bit, especially when wide open and full wide angle. A stop or more of exposure at the corners is not uncommon. If you add filters or accessory lens adapters, it can get much worse. You really need to show an example for use to offer more of an opinion on the problem.

Is that to say the camcorder stays, or that you feel you have a problem that requires repair.
