sharpness is a bit vague in its definition, what people really want, is the resolution.

a sharp picture will contain more data on the light than a unsharp version.

There is nothing "vague" about the definition of sharpness. You can have a camera with 50 megapixels on it but slap a blurry lens on it and all the potential resolution of the sensor can not be realized.
