Re: clinical Versus un-clinical?

I'd say that clinical means both very sharp, and high in contrast. I have two MF systems, a Bronica S2 with lenses from the late 60s, and a Mamiya 6 with lenses from about 1990. Even though the Mamiya lenses are sharper and have more contrast, there is still something I'd call "clinical" about them. I can't define it other than to say that the imperfections of older lenses seem to make for attractive photos in many situations, especially black and white.
