Color saturation and contrast can be adjusted, true sharpness can not.

I often see this claim.

I can honestly say that I am not competent to increase the detail contrast of my photos to make them look as if they came from a Zeiss lens. And I haven't really seen examples of anyone else being able to do that.

So perhaps contrast is harder to do in PP than you claim.

It is not a "claim," it is a simple reality. Color saturation and contrast are easily adjustable in software. Sharpness adjustment in software is not true sharpness.

My point was that if you just pull the contrast sliders, you will get more overall contrast, but you can't achieve the detail contrast of a good lens without increasing overall contrast so much that the photo seems unnatural.
