This 2nd Diana has odd focusing - fairly sharp blending to blurry and back.

    My Debonair had such issues with sharp focus and blurriness. Turned out the plastic element lens wasn't attached to the lens housing. I took the lens housing off and superglued the lens in place. My problem was solved.

    @neufotomacher the Debonair that looks like a Diana, or the one sold by Film Photography Project?

    This is a picture with my Debonair before I glued the lens in place:…

    @neufotomacher I have one of those too. Good fun camera. Apparently mine does not have that issue as my photos with my Debonair are typically reasonably sharp with the usual blurring at the edges. Was looking at this Diana and not sure exactly how I would proceed. But, I have another Diana and a Rover, same thing, that work fine. I might retire this one. Thanks for the information!

    @neufotomacher That's a similar effect, for sure, with the loose lens. Some might like that effect.
