kx lens kit sharp, kr?


I have read and seen that on the KX with 18-55 kit lens,
There is a sharp point when you shoot at 30mm-35-mm.

The pictures are clear and sharp at this point.

My question is to the KR users is that the same in the KR camera and kit lens?

The camera body shouldn't affect the sharpness of this lens, which is known to be sharpest used at 35mm and f/8.

It's the same lens, so yes but if you want more sharpness, you can always get a better lens!

Karelson, you don't need to be a K-r user to know that K-r comes with the same kit lens as K-x. It simply is the same lens.
