Infinity Focus Problem

Hi! My uncle gave me three screwmount Takumar lenses which I use on my Pentax SuperProgram and Olympus E-620 with the infinity adapter. Two of the lenses focus to infinity but the 120mm f/2.8 doesn't. It takes sharp photos though. Does anyone of you has the same problem?

I have had that problem on a couple of Takumars that had been knocked around over the years. Infinity focus is adjustable on the Takumars. Do a search here and you should find some instructions. If you don't post back and I'll try to remember how it is done. It is not difficult though it is tedious.

Just FYI but that 120 f/2.8 is a rare bird. Don't let go of it casually.
