So - if this is indeed the case, that my adaptor is fine - what would cause my lens not to focus to infinity - and what can I do about it?
In the past half hour I have completed a number of shots. I won't bother you with any other than this. I think 30,000+ feet counts as infinity.

The bad news is that the helicoid on the lens seems to need lubrication.

(There have been a number of PMs).

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
