Thanks Paul, I will do that. Could this also explain the "white haze" that I see in the middle of the photo and the lack of sharpness?

It's possible, yes.

What would happen if this is the case is your picture is being over exposed.  This is because the camera is expecting the aperture to be smaller than it was when the picture was taken.  For example: The camera thought the aperture was f/ 5.6 but the aperture didn't close no more to f/ 4 when the exposure was made.
