Laowa 9mm f2.8 Infinity Focusing Issue

Just received this little gem of a lens but having an issue with it's infinity focusing ability, or lack of, between my 2 MFT cameras.  When mounted on my E-PL7 infinity focusing is possible, albeit the infinity marking is way short of reaching the "hard stop".  On my GX9, it won't even focus when the focus ring is turned all the way to the stop.  ???  Don't have this issue with any other MF lenses.

Love the images this lens can produce, but it must be able to focus properly on all my bodies.  And yes, it will be returned/exchanged soon.

Infinity on E-PL7 ....
