I'm using a Minolta Maxxum 5000 with a 35-80mm 1:4 (22) - 5.6. The camera seems to work fine, but I've noticed a recurring soft focus effect that seems to effect outdoor photos more than anything. It reminds me of the Palette Knife effect in Photoshop.
I've also noticed some photos will end up with streaks of light or ghost images - some of the background might be visible through the subject in the foreground.
I just cleaned the lens, but I don't want to waste film. Would a thorough cleaning solve these issues or do I need a new lens?
I'll try to post some scans later.
