Why are kit lens' pictures like P&S?
Dec 3, 2012

forgive me for making a general statement.

when i bought my very very very old but very very reliable nex3 several years ago, the review said that the images were superb & contrasty.

after i bought the nex3 with the kit 18-55 lens, the pictures that i got were more than ok. they were colorful (if taken outside), they were clear (if adjusted using DMF), they were not grainy (if set to ISO 200).

Point being, all of these characteristic could be achieved using a P&S camera.

Not satisfied with my pictures, I then followed the legacy lens + adapter route. It was only using these lenses that I got the image quality that I was looking for in a mirrorless camera.

Do you also feel this way with your kit lens?
