Looks sharp enough to me. Handling the camera is whatever works for you. It helps to have forces and torques in balance, of course.

Flare in the last one is typical of uncoated lenses. A hood could help but do not expect too much.

You mean the first pictures or the last ones?
Maybe I'm being too picky, that's why I ask your opinion.
Thank you Julio!

The last ones look very sharp, especially that cityscape; the first ones were not too bad (to my eye at least). About flare, I understand you only got flare in the portrait of two men in the last picture. Maybe a hood could have helped to control flare there.

Thank you for the input Julio.

Some update...Today I was collimating some cameras through ground glass and not with the DSLR and I found the Superb out of focus, I went home and with the DSLR as well, really out of focus and I can't absolutely collimate it. I don't recall to do anything with the camera after the last shooting, so far I can only say faeries did it during the night.
Tips, there is only one thread to place the rear and front elements, I didn't open the front elements myself, but I will to check the glasses are correct.
Solved: I found the thread from the front element loose, shutter shaking??? I will do a hundred of shutter release and see if thats the reason...
But not I have to collimate both talking and viewing lenses again...

Don't think I've ever seen that before on a leaf shutter camera. But then not everyone made them like Voigtlander did.

So far I haven't found the same thing in any of the cameras, but I have very limited experience at the moment.
Hans K. said he heard something about this but he can't recall when.
