<<  A photograph is either sharp or not. Subjectivity doesn't  enter into it.

Sharpness is relative.  There is no definitive line between a sharp and and an
unsharp photograph.  It is a conintuous spread from very sharp to very blury.
As evidenced by this thread, each person has his or her own opinion of where
the line is.  What one person finds acceptably sharp is unacceptable blury to

If you think there is no subjectivity, perhaps you could define what the
objective definition is.  (ie would you propose a certain number of line pairs
per mm as a criteria?)  

I agree with Erwin.
