Wide angle lenses have a much smaller depth of focus than normal and longer lenses.
It the inverse of depth of field: wide lenses have greater depth of field in front of the lens, and narrower depth of focus on the sensor plane, while long lenses, with narrow depth of field have greater depth of focus (and are thus easier to adapt with less issues).
Because of this, wide angle lenses are extremely sensitive to flange variations, and usually don't do well with cheap adapters because of looser manufacturing tolerances.

It's this. Also explains why adapting the Voigtlander 12 SL to a tilt-shift adapter is such a pain...
