Ah, you are on to my tricks!

I took some test shots of my laptop screen at 35 mm f/4 and compared with the 35 mm f/1.8 DX also at 35 mm and f/4 (100% crops of the 13 megapixel JPEGs):

The prime lens is obviously sharper. However, at f/8 the AF 28-80 catches up:

(Also note the moiré resulting from the lack of anti-aliasing filter on the D7100.)
