Re: Edge Sharpness: When is it really important?

IMHO it depends a lot on the subject matter.  For many things it doesn't matter.  However, if the photo is printed large and the subject matter invites you to closely inspect small details throughout the image then soft edges can really have an impact.  It also depends on how soft - some lenses get ugly "smeary" near the edges which is different than just a little soft.
