The Sony DT 35mm F1.8 SAM, a budget-focused prime lens, is only suitable for use on APS-C dSLRs, but it could be a pretty good choice if you own a Sony APS-C body and don't want to spend too much money on a wide-angle prime lens. Let’s take a closer look.
In your overall ratings, you actually rate the D 5200 higher than the D7100 by one point; but the D 7100 doesnot have the OLPF and in your individual lens ratings, the lenses always rate higher and with better sharpness with the D7100. So I am trying to understand why does the D 5200 rate higher than the D 7100?
Thanks for your support, the dxomark score does not take into account sharpness and resolution. It evaluates sensor on a noise/color point of view. Basically the D5300/D5200 and D7100 achieve the same score on the DxOMark sensor rating. (1 point of difference means only 1/15 of a Stop) To have the whole story, you should maybe wait for the lens result for Nikon D5300 (which should be available very soon).
I was wondering how the 35mm f/1.8G DX lens scores higher on the DXOMark score than almost all other lenses on the D7000? It's individual scores of Sharpness, Distortion, Vignetting, Transmission and Chromatic Abberations are mediocre at best and is beaten by multiple lenses such as the 50mm f/1.8G and 105mm f/2 DC which have lower DXOMark Scores.

The difference comes from the sharpness homogeneity in the fied: the 35mm provides a very similar level of sharpness in the field while the 2 other are less good in the field.
