I altered that last scan and bumped up the contrast in certain areas. I thought contrast was a bit low as well. I'm using old pretty XTOL so maybe it's the developer. I need to mix up a new batch to be sure. The lens looks clean. I'll post some pics of the lens later. I building a list of things to get so perhaps a lens hood needs to be on the list.

IDK if that was your idea, I wouldn't blame the lens entirely for that, but it may need a lenshood indeed, as Xmas said.
