Robert M, I admire that you have put your thoughts out there and gone to the effort of showing your work. Thanks.
But, honestly. There is simply no comparison between what the MS de-blurr does and what a simple sharpening filter can do. And looking by looking at the images it's totally obvious (at least to anyone who has a threshold level of photography or image processing experience.) The MS de-blurr technique is a starting point for improving the original image capture intent, not an end point. The MS de-blurr technique enhances the amount of information captured instead of degrading poorly captured information. It can be processed further by *proper* post processing image enhancement techniques and get to a much better result than what you have done with a simple Sharpen filter.
In other words, run those sharpen filters on the MS de-blurred images to see a better comparison (although the filters you used are actually not a good choice to enhance the image.)
Don't think of this technique as a replacement for a tripod or proper image capture. Rather think of it as an additional free improvement to all the other techniques.
The really cool thing about the MS de-blurr technique is that it can use onboard hardware "for free" (at least for many smart phones) to improve image capture with little effort. It could be used to great effect with any camera (with adaptation, depending on additional hardware used) DSLR, point and shoots, etc., especially if it can be run on the raw data before processing into JPEG or TIFF. If the process is computationally too intensive, it can still be used very effectively in post processing if the image is captured RAW.
