    I've noticed that the focus is off in some photos taken on my ETRs, could there be an alignment issue there?

    Possably.

    If the screen has been changed it may need to be focused to the film plane. Check it using a GG on the film plane n a well lit target? The screen adjusts by shims under the screen mount.. you can see the screws.

    Also, do you need a change in the diopter? Stock is -1.5 from memory.

    Check the Ground Glass to make sure it is seated properly. I've had this problem in the past with the little metal spring and the plastic. Of course, it's most apparent when not stopped down.
