The sharpening may indeed be subtle but nevertheless usually required.

Sharpening for print or web are a different matter and each to his own preferences and tools
i should Have noted Selective area sharpening is the best way for me to sharpen. eyes, hairs around the face, lips.
as for high lens quality - it sure helps a lot. a lot of work i don't need to do.
for me its easier to use PhotoZoom sharpening for landscape. if the wind didn't work out in my favor i use a Micro Detail sharpening. then PhotoZoom.
