Traditional boxy cameras - RB/RZ, Hasselblad 500's - focus adjustment?

Hi, not referring to digital back exactly but a related question.  For those of you who had gotten a digital back for the boxy type medium format cameras did you have to get your focus screen calibrated?

The reason I ask is that I have a RB67 and also a Hasselblad 500CM but both of them are very sharp at f11 doing a landscape but they are not so sharp when doing a portrait on a tripod at a moderate F5.6 or something.  Could it be that I am overly picky and it's film photography or maybe it needs calibration?

Cheers.
