The Flektagon is renowned for it's close-focus ability, less so for performance at infinity although it does OK.

You may find you get better results fine-tuning focus at infinity rather than relying on the hard stop. Most adapters aren't 100% precise and allow you to focus past infinity so just focusing a fraction before the hard stop often works better

Thank you for your reply. Will definitely try out focusing at infinity as suggested. Yes, close focusing is definitely strong feature of this lens, which I plan to investigate further. Especially, since this is now my closest focusing lens on Z.
