Sick plants

We've had an awful lot of rain lately and nearly all my plants have these spots. Should I be concerned?

Do the stems have dark blotches? Could be early or late blight.

Is this one of the lowest leaves? How low?

Do you have mulch around the tomatoes to prevent soil splashing up onto the leaves?

Yes, all the rain is very conducive to fungal and other diseases that tomatoes are prone to, blights, wilts, septoria etc. Not entirely sure what your tomatoes have, but it does look like they have something.
