    Hello, I'm pang, from sabah malaysia. I notice that my photos always blur and soft, even i try using a higher shutter speed, higher f/number, and make sure really in focus only i snap. FYI, these photos took with Fm2n + 50 1.4, expired kodak ultramax 400 and also expired fuji superia 400. Need help n guidance :smile:

    negative was scan with 9000F, then resize.

    Most of them I see the sharpest part of the photo, so rather a misfocus?
    One of the road is focused on the bottom left corner, and needs a deeper DOF.


    Other than that, Focusing screen and the pressure plate on your camera in good shape?

    Only on the bottom one do I see anything in focus, and even there it's not perfectly sharp (the ceiling). I think there could be something out of order with your camera or lens. Do you get the same results with a different lens?
