I have a set of Lee Grads and my shot from sunset the other night just don't appear very sharp when I pay close attention. They were all shot at f/11-f/16 so I would think about everything should be razor sharp? Maybe something is up with my camera?

Yes, a GND can affect sharpness slightly, but Lee are good quality and shouldn't have any significant effect. You may see a slight difference pixel peeping at 100%, but that should disappear under normal viewing.

There are many factors that can affect sharpness far more than a filter. If you post the pic we can give an opinion on it, otherwise we are just trying to guess what the situation is.

That's true and right now I'm just on my iPhone so I can't really post one.....I think my camera may have an issue, the ISO has been noisy lately at ISO 100 for some reason too. I was told that GNDs affect the photo in so many negative ways to not even use one according to a fellow pro, but I've never had any issues until now.

In theory, anything you stick in the light path affects IQ...

Some things are less detrimental than others, but it's simply a matter of physics!
