In the olden days of film some photographers spoke of Leica lenses as "always sharp but never too sharp."

I find my newest lens a bit harsh when it comes to skin texture compared to the lens I used before. Both do a nice job of rendering detail such as hair and eyelashes but one brings out pores and blemishes more than the other.

So I guess you could say it is in a sense too sharp.


In today's digital world there is no such thing as "too sharp" from a practical point. It's easy to deal with in post.

Ever try de-sharp the image from Foveon sensor?
