comment When should I consider an image sharp?
There is not enough information to know what is going on. It could be soooo many things or even just your perception. Note that you need to see images at 1:1 (100% magnification) to see the actual pixels, most cameras zoom-in further and interpolate after that which is why it can look blurry without being so. Otherwise, start by checking sharpness settings.

comment Where does the price premium of full-frame come from?
Without knowing the real reason, my intuition tells me its #2. Volume can reduce the price of most chain-produced item much more than the difference between component costs. You will see that there are even compact cameras which cost more than APS-C DSLRs and those are usually premium models which sell even fewer units.

comment What could have caused this splotch to appear?
Looks like an object in close proximity. I once had this happen several times and could not figure it out until I finally spotted it: an insect. Unfortunately, I have no idea if this is the case for you. Could be a drop of water or sweat even.

Break the questions. There are two here and one has been answered already I suspect.

comment Why are my photos taken with the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 coming out blurred?
In addition to being back focuses, as others said already, you are shooting wide-open. This lens does not get truly sharp at wide-angle until F/8 with F/5.6 being pretty decent.

comment Does a viewfinder cover really make a difference?
@Jasmine - Only with (D)SLRs which are the only cameras that come with a viewfinder cover or eyepiece shutter. Camera with EVFs need not worry about it.
