Please verify that this is early blight?

Sungold on left, Oxheart on right.
I first saw it on the oxheart. The sungold is not as bad.
Are they both gonners?
Could I just pull out the oxheart? Still not sure what the disease is.
My other containers are doing allright.

RE: Please verify that this is early blight?

hate to say it, but it doesn't look good - I'd say fusillium wilt (but that's a guess) - you definitely need to pitch them if that's the case and will need to sterilze that container if you use it next year. sorry

Please verify that this is early blight? Or nutrient deficiency?

Well now, what to do?
I snipped off all the yellow leaves and then used some miracle grow liquid fertilizer on it. This was before I thought it was wilt. The remaining leaves have not gotten any yellower and new fruit is setting and the older fruits are starting to ripen. I don't have a pic right now, but if it was Fusillium wilt, wouldn't the whole plant be a goner by now?

I have tomatoes that look like this also. I think it's a result of too much fertilizer; most hybrids don't get fusarium wilt. I had used some granular fertilizer around the plants instead of the liquid fertilizer that I always use. I am going back to the liquid and hoping that we have gotten enough rain to wash away the other fertilizer. Sounds like a strange year for tomato growing.
