Comparison of D5200 Kit lens IQ to 35mm 1.8 prime?
7 months ago

I've been following this forum for a while and got a D5200 for Christmas.

I'm still very new with DSLR, had a Canon S2IS before that was getting "old". As I've not really got anything to compare with (only got the kit lens so far) how much better is the IQ from the 35 or 50 1.8 prime compared to the kit lens? I'm still playing about with the auto focus methods and area settings at the moment so realise a lot is likely to be user error.

I've had a look on dxomark but cannot compare the 2 lenses with a D5200 so the "sharpness" value is not really giving me the true picture.
