Are ALL manual focus primes soft on XTrans cameras?

Never had a problem with my adapters

I've got more than I care to count for m43s, NEX and now Fuji. I have about 4 for each system in Nikon, OM, Contax and Canon FD and none of them have given me cause for concern - and they were all just cheap Chinese ones.

Of course it may be that your adapter is wrong but even if it is a little wrong I would have thought that you could achieve proper focus somewhere from near to infinity.

Have you done a proper tripod test ? Used full 10x magnification ? I've tried the focus peaking and for me it gave me false positives - could that be a cause of the softness you're seeing ?
