Center or not doesn't matter.

I specifically chose a centre crop as even the 12-50 does pretty well here. Though it would be better if the lenses where more compatible.

TL;DR lens quality affects high ISO performance. Better lens takes better pictures.

I have had enough experience with this: at high ISOs, images made with zooms would show more noise than images with primes.

At lower ISOs one still can clean up some of the imperfections of the kit lenses. Sharpening alone often is enough.

But at the higher ISOs, noise and lens imperfections are irreversibly mixed up. No amount RAW magic would ever help you to clean it up.
