The arrival of the Sony 24-70 F2.8 GM and all the testing that people have been doing brought to mind the importance sharpening plays in creating a "sharp looking" image.

HERE is a page I added to my website to illustrate how clarity and sharpening impact acutance.

In my view, even with as good a lens as the new 24-70 GM at F8, paying attention to clarity and sharpening with processing images is important.
