The mZD 75mm f/1.8 is almost being accused of its overt sharpness too.

I don't know. I am  the member of not-being-obssesed-by-sharpness cult. For me, content and message of the image are more important than sharpness. The no content, no meaning, ultra-sharp image is merely the waste electric energy.
