What a lovely image, why does it need to be sharper than this? Do you need to be able to count the number of eyelashes at 100% for the image to be nice?

All else being equal, is the image somehow nicer because you can't count eyelashes?

Nowhere did I say that sharpness is the only important thing in an image. But to claim that a lack of sharpness in the focal plane is desirable or acceptable in a professional lens would seem strange to me.
