Will the 50 mm take appreciably better photographs than the 18-55 mm zoom set at 50 mm ?

Thank you.

No, if you limit the 18-55 to a FL between 24 and 30mm and the aperture to f8, the 18-55 will outperform the 50 in sharpness, especially at the center.

Recently, the 50mm has been over-rated and the 18-55, mounted on one of the newer cameras (distortion correction enabled plus PDAF lens firmware) has been underestimated.
