Tough to tell, too bad about the negs. The fringing does seem sharp, but there is sharpening that is applied both in scanning and in printing so it's hard to judge. The B&W still could tell you something, if it is the lens it would show as softness, something like a "glow" that true soft focus lenses give. If nothing else, you would have some negs to look at, so you can eliminate any digital effects. Eliminating digital, what apug is all about.
