Samyang 7.5 incredibly weird issue
Aug 26, 2012

Ok guys, I have truly no clue on how this is happening but here it is:

My friend and I both have om-d cameras and we have an assortment of af m43 lenses that we exchange (12-50, 45, 20,12).

I recently bought a Samyang 7,5mm fisheye lens and have been thrilled with it so far, the lens is super sharp and works great.

Today I handed it over to my friend for him to try and he could not get it to focus on infinity...

We double triple and quadruple checked everything but the lens will not focus to infinity until stepped down to at least f11, it acts like it's on some sort of extension macro ring.

The lens works perfectly on my camera and all the AF lenses are perfect on both cameras but the fisheye just can't focus to infinity on my friend's cam.

Wtf could the problem be?

Thanks.
