I am trying to find out whether my Nikon 18-55 mm (f/3.5-5.6G VR) kit lens has something wrong with it since I'm getting a whole lot of "fogginess" in the pictures I take as compared to my other lens. Here I have taken two pictures at the same focal depth (35 mm), same aperture (f/5), same shutter speed (1/100) and slightly different ISOs (900 and 1000) (VR off, AF on), AF is on the bottom of the Kestine box. The problem isn't as clear here as it is in some of my other photographs but I still consider it a problem. Can anyone give me a clue as to what, if anything, is wrong with this lens or give me further advice for troubleshooting this kind of problem?
ps. The other lens is a Nikkor 35 mm f/1.8 lens.
