Sharpness isn't everything one might want from a lens, but a sufficiently sharp focal plane is the most fundamental requirement of a lens.

The problem that a lot of people seem to have with the 58 is that they are looking at sharpness at test chart distances and extrapolating that to all distances. The sharpness of the 58 varies greatly with focus distance - at distance it is every bit as sharp as the 85 1.4G even at f/1.4. The field curvature also flattens.

It is meaningless to talk about sharpness of the 58 without the context of the shooting distance.
