It could be the K64 appears sharper to some because it has a heck of a lot more
snap (contrast) than the K25 which has a softer, lower contrasty and pink look.
The specs say the K25 resolves higher but if Erwins tests refute that then i
find that food for further thought with hot melted butter.

My personal experience says that the K64 has a CLARITY which i associate in my
own head as sharpness over the E6 films.
The E6 films all look great by themselves as long as they are not followed by
Kodachrome or compared to Kodachrome. When the Kodachrome slide comes up i take
a deep breath and think "now there's a nice clear picture." ... a breath of
fresh air..
