If you shoot raw then the camera is neither sharp nor soft.
A lens can be soft if its focus alignment does not match up with the camera (see discussions on micro-focus adjust).
A JPEG can be soft if the conversion algorithm is not up to scratch.
There's no such thing as a sharp or soft DSLR.
I would disagree... my rebel XT (8mp ) is way sharper than the 1d mk.ii I had (8mp).. I attribute that to the aggressive AA filter on the 1d2. So yes you can have a sharp and soft DSLR just like the D800 is a softer version of the D800E.
