Here is a nice reference from Zeiss on sharpness and other things concerming lens quality.    It is written from the perspective of photographers.

As others have said, sharpness is important and easily understood, but one of only many important qualities that may be harder to understand.

For some type of images sharpness might be the dominating thing, for instance a models hair being blown by a large fan (not in the picture) and lit by a flash.
