Hello, how are you?

So, after spending a lot of time on photography sites, blogs and forums, one thing that seems to always be mentioned is lens sharpness.

There seems to be sort of an obsession about sharpness that always generates flaming debates about sharpness, bad copies, sample variation and such...

This got me wondering... Do we really need more and more sharpness? For portraits, events, models... is super sharpness even a good thing? How much is enough? And why do people get so turned on by this?

Hope to hear your opinion on this matter.

Cheers!

I wonder about the same.  However, one advantage of very sharp images is that it allows you to crop and still retain acceptable sharpness.  I'm not into portraits but a softer look is better, in my opinion.
