Thanks, though I'm not so sure how accurate that is.

Voightlander, for example, will tell you that their adapter should focus on infinity when you reach the hard stop -- and plenty of people report adapters that stop where they want.

I think it may come down more to sample variation.

Also, regarding shimming -- I'd be more into that if they designed the adapters to be shimmed, and included a few shims.

I have not tested any Voigtländer or Novoflex adaptors, but I have tested a bunch of others, like Metabones, Kipon, Fotodiox, and no-name chinese.

I can't recall one being 100% accurate on infinity, although most were very close. It may also depend on the level of accuracy you are expecting for your photography.

But YMMV,

I've 2 Fotodiox and a Hawk's. All 3 focus slightly past infinity. Hard to imagine one company, producing one adapter that works exactly at infinity with every M mount.

Does Voigtlander really guarantee that?
