Re: It helps

It helps if people say what they mean by "sharp".

On the one hand there is acutance (edge detail) which can give an impression of "sharpness" when resolution is low, and there is resolution which can give an impression of a lack of detail if not accompany by high acutance.

Many sites test with a 1000:1 contrast subject which is encountered maybe once every 10 years in real world photography; limiting the value more toward text book theory than everyday photographic reality.

Whether you put resolution or acutance first is up to you. If you mean what I think you mean by sharpness in a high MP digital era you are unlikely to maximise it shooting jpeg, or without post processing, and definitely not in the corners of a 24 mm used wide open.

We all aspire to take great photos but may not always achieve this perhaps due to a lack of application, a lack of knowledge, or even a lack of talent.
The best photographers probably work quite hard at their photography.
