I have to set the manual focus at around 25cm to have a sharp image at infinity.

I believe that's not the case. If those online calculators are correct, hyperfocal distance of this lens is around 1 metre.

When focused on 1m distance, everything from around 0.5m to infinity should be in focus.

I used to own this exact lens and I always used it stopped down to f/4 and cranked focus about halfway of 0.25m and infinity mark. Seemed to give decent results with that.
