Jeffrey I don't think in digital photography its a thing where some lenses
require sharpening and others do not because they're so sharp to begin with.
Sharpening is pretty much part of the process.
Though people are saying its not needed with an M8 because of the lack of
anti aliasing pane of glass. No idea of that's true or not. I'm guessing
they'd still need some slight sharpening.
At the size we're looking at it on the screen you cant really tell.
It could be resized.
But it looks real soft to me.
If the eyelashes are sharp they are too small to see.
