and it is just a smidge, just that much....

if I were shooting for Facebook or instagram, you'd never see the difference with their squashing algorithms.... but here and flickr are a different story....

not for C/Y mount lenses; the instructions (both printed and on the website) state that AR-mount (Konica) lenses will not infinity focus..

infinity focus was one of the issues I checked for with K-mount lenses before I started buying anything else.....

if anything, I have a couple of good, non-infinity focusing lenses, and the rest of this adventure works itself out...

the Nikkor is due today, so we'll see.....
The Nikkor should focus to inf. You can mount them on normal K mount cameras, they just wont lock in place.

agreed - it and OM-mount lenses may save this project yet...

for example - this is the Yashica ML Macro 55/2.8:



this is pretty close to infinity - close enough I was allowing for it....


but here are a couple more that are definitely soft at infinity:



What a shame! That hay bale photo is really lovely otherwise.

Actually, those clouds look weirdly more in focus than the nearer trees. But that may just be contrast playing a trick on me.

no worries - hopefully the Nikkor that arrives this week will put to rest any notions that this has been a waste of time....
