lx is acting strangly.

so i have been using my lx for about a year and it was working pretty perfectly, but recently the pictures have been coming out good and bad.
some of the pictures in the daytime have been coming out half black or with big black places in the pictures. could this be my mirror sticking? also some of the pics have been coming out quite underexposed..

anyway, ive been following threads on here for a while and you all seem to be helpful so i thought id ask..

i attached a couple examples of bad shots that have come out.

Are you experiencing this with several different lenses? If you've been using only one, check the aperture blade operation.

Otherwise, I'd suspect the aperture mechanism on the camera itself.

thank you.
yes. recently i have been using just my fa50mm f1.4.
i'll try using a different lens for a role and see if they come out better.
