Out of Focus and Over-Exposured

OK, I know why it is over-exposed, but why is it out-of-focus? I set the lens to the number on the ring, but it turned out like this? Belair, you like to tease me.

    @lilithmoon I find there is a big difference in the reliability of the two lenses. One of them is lo-fi but nonetheless close to target on the focus and the other is unpredictable. As for the exposure, I blame myself not the camera. I know it does just fine when it is set correctly. :)

    I'm usually happy with the results given by my belair, but I can not focus properly, especially in portraits on landscape don't given me problems, but you're right about the lens are lo-fi.
    I don't used the Belairgon lenses, although it seems to work much better, but very expensive!

    @lazybuddha I am sure of it!

    @lilithmoon I am thinking of acquiring a Belairgon lens. But first I play with some lenses for my Bronica. :)
