Another test of SEL35F18 versus kit lens
1

I just wanted to test for myself the sharpness of the lenses rather than rely on anecdotes. Both pictures are at F5.6. As can be seen, the 35mm is much sharper in the corners. No pixel peaking is needed to observe the difference. However (pictures not included), stepping down to F9, the difference almost disappears. So, it might not be that important in many real-world scenarios.
