Have I been hit by tomato blight?

Leaves have dark black spots, some are going pale. Others have black around the edge.

Early blight shows as pale rings, which is why it is sometimes called Halo Blight, so I would say not. The black spots don't look pustule-like either so they may not be a pathogen so much as physical damage. Keep an eye and f you are worried pick off the affected leaves and don't add them to your compost bin

Agree with Sunny - tomato leaves are great whingers and can display their displeasure in a thousand different ways, and it's often hard to work out what's upsetting them.

Doesn't look like blight - when in doubt I give them a weak tomato feed in case there is a slight trace element deficiency (avoid wetting the leaves, which can encourage blight if it's about and also increase the chances of leaf scorch, another common tomato leaf problem.)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Help - we have potato blight and tomato blight
