Really? I think the harsh microcontrast is the main problem when shooting portraits withe the Merrills.

It's easy to soften a sharp image. It's difficult to sharpen a soft image. All things being equal, I'll take sharp images over soft images.

I was not talking about sharpness, but about micro contrast.
