Good point Mike. You're right that an element of it is due to the trend towards over-processed images with every single shot having the saturation/vibrance cranked up to 11 and a heavy pass of unsharp mask.

What I was trying to get at with my comment about lenses, is that as optical technology progresses and digital correction of images becomes better and better, perfectly sharp, colorful images become commonplace. There's nothing special about them. Hence why from an artistic perspective I'm starting to lean towards trying to find lenses that give the image something that can't be achieved with post processing. Maybe that's foolish but this is just a hobby to me so I do what gives me the most enjoyment
