Achieving excellent sharpness

Theres a photographer whos images are so sharp in color and crisp that they look life like. Everyone think its just his camera but I am convinced that its his photoshop skills as well. I have seen some of his regular work that wasnt as sharp and crisp so I know its photoshop. I think hes using channels to get the look but not sure, but I know hes using the sharpen also. Can someone help, this is his site:

I could only find images at that site that are about 600x400 resolution, so I couldn't tell.

We had a very good discussion on sharpening over here:

My final attempt with that image can be found here:

and what I was aiming for is this:

It looks to me also that the photographer blurs the background in order to make the subject seem sharper. I've read of this trick in this excellent book "photoshop color correction" by Michael Kieran.

As an experienced photographer, it's definitely the camera lens. Some companies call them APO, Nikon's type is ED. Basically, the RGB wave lengths intersect and invert on the same plane as they pass through the lens. The result is superior color and crisp images. I have a few of these lenses and can achieve the same results. The blurred background is a result of using a low f stop shortening the depth of field thus causing the blurred background. Not cheap glass either.

Most of the work I do is beauty photography, but I love the overall sharpeness of his images.
