question about takumars

I just got into the world of takumars and so far it's great, but I just have a little question.

When I screw in the lens, it doesn't twist all the way so that the arrow lines up with the middle of the camera. Is this normal? I have the genuine adapter and was just wondering if it would affect inifinity focus or anything like that.

This is normal ... it arrow will be just to the right of centre when looking down on the lens.

Since the annoying butt-ugly built-in flash protrusion would block your view if it lined up "correctly" I like to consider this a feature rather than a defect.
