I've recently got a new camera, the Nikon D780 with kit lens (AF-S 24-120mm f/4 G ED VR), the lens works great except for the vignetting I often get with. I have tried using it with and without the lens hood but it does not seem to change the result. I would be really grateful for some help!

This lens seems to suffer from vignetting. The linked review gives you combinations of focal length/aperture that mitigate this.

On the other hand vignetting is quite easy to compensate in any photo editor/demosaïcing application worth its salt, and that lens is probably very widely supported.
