I have been using my Crown Graphic on and off for a few years now. I still think it is far more difficult to use than my 35mm and medium format cameras, but it is also very nice to get those huge negatives and positives back. However, I have noticed that my images tend towards softness towards the edges. This is probably a bit because of the nature of the Optar lens (at least this is what I heard), but it also tends to be significantly worse on the right side of the image. Sometimes it is plainly out of focus on the right side, although it is usually not visible to the naked eye (i.e. I have to use the loupe to see it). The film holders do not seem to be the issue here. Any suggestions?
