Picked up this lens recently and I'm totally thrilled with the image quality. One question I have for current owners of this lens is regarding the hard stop at infinity. On my Zeiss 21 Distagon the hard stop coincides with infinity focus and the infinity focus confirmation chirp/indicator.
On the 50 MP, the hard stop at infinity DOES NOT coincide with focus at infinity or the infinity focus confirmation chirp/indicator. Is this normal or do you think my copy of this lens is out of spec? At any distance less than 4 meters or so the focus confirmation light pops up when the image is perfectly in focus -- confirmed with live view @ 10x. If I shoot at something say 6m away which should be at infinity focus and just set the lens at the infinity hard stop it is not focused -- I actually have to back off a bit to get the image perfectly focused.
I'm thinking it's probably normal and just a quirk of this lens but would like to know if others have noticed this.
