Sharpness is not everything! But it sure doesn't hurt.
In reply to Russell Evans, Feb 20, 2014

When I was a high school student a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I could hardly afford film and processing to feed my photography obsession never mind expensive sharp "pro" lenses.  Therefore I learned to stop down between F5.6-F11 and to shoot with a tripod.  As I grew older and was able to afford better lenses and better equipment this habit carried over.

Yes sharpness is not everything but if and when you need/want it, there is no substitute.  You cannot make a lens sharper but you could always soften it.
