Here the issue is not that sharpness is bad, it's not, but in evaluating a lens it is not now, should never be and really until modern times never was the sole criteria in judging a lens.

Again, I basically agree that sharpness is not the beginning and end of a good rendering.

Witness the Pentax lenses that don't do all that well in lab tests, but interpret scenes beautifully.

My enjoyment of the DA50-200WR is a fine example of this. Love its color & consistently nice bokeh, but definitely not my sharpest weapon.

Yes, it does have a nice painterly look to it.
