Olympus Zuiko 24mm f/2.8 - not quite focussing to infinity
Feb 1, 2013

I got an OM 24mm f/2.8 recently after recommendations on this forum and other research. Miint in case with hood = lovely!

It's great on the NEX-7 apart from the fact it's not quite focussing to infinity. Not much good for landscapes etc as it is!

I think this is because of the adapter (Kiwi fotos) which is also an extremely tight fit so it takes some effort to mount the lens. Would this less than infinity focus be expected if distance from lens to sensor is fractionally longer than it should be?
