Most landscape photographers probably regard ultimate sharpness across the frame as very desirable. Hence the choice of large sensors over small ones.

I'm afraid that doesn't make sense. Not in the real world anyway.

If you want sharpness across the frame, then for example, one way to get it with Canon or Nilkon is to use a SMALLER APSc sensor with normal FX lenses so you crop out potentially soft corners.

Similarly, smaller sensors do allow the designers (if they choose to accept that mission) to slightly over-engineer their dedicated lenses to achieve the same thing.

Of course ... its possible you mistakenly used the word 'sensors' instead of 'lenses' ...
