    More detail can be seen in a quality enlargement than on the ground glass. An 8x10 print from that lens should be sharp if the focus was good, the lens is free from fungus, fingerprints, or other flaws, the lens was stopped down, the camera and subject not moved during exposure, etc. The enlargement might not be ideal. Attention to detail is crucial for quality prints from large format film.

    These may be some of the more important questions in this query. Too often the equipment is questioned when these are left unexplained... and are more likely the issue.

    Oh, and one more: tripod?
