For whatever it's worth, since the test appears to be pretty simple to perform, I'm going to try it just out of curiosity.
My prints look pretty sharp to me. But I never need high contrast filtration (I'm usually around grade 2) so the effect might be negligable at those settings. Who knows. So I'd be curious to see if there is a noticeable effect when dialing in higher contrast on my setup with my usual paper.
The figures thrown out by Ctein are still somewhat shocking to me. I mean, if you're making an 8x10 print from a 35mm negative (as in his example) and your focus is off by a whopping 15mm, wouldn't the print be grossly unsharp using a reasonable aperture?
