Anyone tested 18-55 kit vs. 35mm prime?
Feb 26, 2013

Photozone is showing the kit at 35mm/5.6 has same resolution as the 18-55 at 35mm 5.6. And also similar prime-like performance to the other primes (when stopped down, given that the kit can't open as wide)

I accepted this at first, but the more I think about it, the harder I find it to believe. I know this is a very well-built kit, but I'm wondering if anyone has really worked out the 18-55 and the 35 together, and compared.

Looking for some feedback/thoughts.
