one ting I find with a 28mm MF lens is that the DOF is so good, you can't easily focus withouot a split image.

how are you focusing this lens.

I have 2 different 28mm lenses vivitar F2.5 and tamron adaptall F2.5, I have seen things like this from poor focus just because it is so hard to get it perfect without split image

Some people like to use metal foil to short the electrical contacts when using certain lenses on certain cameras in order to fool the exposure & metering system into behaving differently. Can workaround certain types of exposure problems that occur with certain manual lens / camera combinations. If you don't have problems, then you don't need this (potentially dangerous) workaround. If you do have problems, you might try Googling for "foil" along with information about the specific problem you are seeing, to see if there is a simialr workaround for your particular problem.
Have you had to use that?
