Infinity on a SLR Magic HyperPrime

This seems like a more general question, but I was invited to the mFT forum on my last question, so... I don't know if this is my expectations being too high, or somthing I can actually fix.

I have a SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm f/1.6 on an E-PL1.

What I'd expect is that, when focusing on distant objects, I have a little bit of wiggle room near the infinity mark that doesn't make that much difference because my hands aren't able to move the focus ring a fractions of a degree, but I should be able to get close.

What I get is more of a feeling of 'give up past 10m', at least with what I can see in the 14x preview. Distant stuff never comes into focus.

Is there anything I can do other than use another lens?
