Another point that needs to be singled out in this thread: Sharpening can not and should not be compared to blurring an image to make it look like a panning shot.

Sharpening an image is a step to bring it closer to reality. I see a train, and it looks sharp. My camera and lens, on the other hand, don't see that train as sharp as my eyes do. In order to correct that, we can sharpen an image to make it look as close to reality as possible. Hence, sharpening should NOT be included in ANY kind of digital manipulation comparison, such as creating a panning shot with post processing blurring.
