Focus Issues

I have a K20 and a Samsung G1L (equivalent of *ist I think). I have a cheepie Sigma 70-300 and a kit lens that came with the Samsung (Schneider) plus several M42 Taks af varying focal lengths. My problem is that when using either camera with any of the lenses my pictures are totally out of focus (fuzzy unsharp). I have tried using AF and MF on all of the focus point selection settings. I have tried putting camera onto full green mode - same problem. It just does not make sence to me. Both cameras and all my lenses cant have colaborated and decide to play up at the same time. Any suggestions apart from drinking my whisky with more water?

Just the same suggestion I always make when someone asks for help with a problem but doens't post examples: post examples (with EXIF intact).

What M42 Taks do you have? Do you have a 50 or 55?

Let's start with one of those, and we'll take it from there.

I have a 50 1.4 and a 50 1.7 bayonet mount. How does one go about loading photos? what file size is allowed?

If you have a flickr or photobucket account, just upload the photos there and then link to them with the image link. As Marc and Ira said, it is difficult to know what could be the issue without seeing photos.
