Olympus 17/1.8 manual focus infinity
7 months ago

I just got the Oly 17/1.8 and I found that when pulling the ring to switch to manual focus and turning it all the way towards infinity will result in focusing past infinity. To get actual infinity I have to line the mark to the infinity symbol, which is very annoying and a lot less useful.

Can someone else with the same lens confirm if this is the case in all of them or if it’s a defect on mine and I should send it back?
