Please recommend a sharp lens for the 5300?
Feb 24, 2014

I am about to jump ship from Sony (A65) to Nikon (5300). Why? I have been uphappy with "soft images" that lack detail at 100% crop. Also, must have built-in GPS.

So, I am looking for a primary zoom lens - looking in the range from 16mm to 50 or 80mm. I can't use prime lenses.

My main criteria is sharpness, center and edge (if possible). A lot of other issues can be resolved in post processing. I always shoot raw. Weather and dust sealing would be nice because I am always playing in the dirt.

I see several zoom lenses out there from nikon, tamron and sigma.

Please recommend the lens that will best appease my sharpness, detail fetish!!
