    Hi, all -

    I'm working on a user Automat K4 right now and have noticed that the focus with the standard racked all the way in is well short of infinity. Have comfirmed this both through the viewing lens and the taking lens as checked with a ground glass on the film rails. There's no obvious damage to the standard.

    Is there a way to set infinity focus on the taking lens? I'm not seeing anything obvious, and haven't done this on a Rolleiflex before.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Got it. Loosened the collet on the focus knob shaft, racked the standard in, continued turning the knob until it hit the infinity stop, and tightened everything back down. Focuses fine now. Just need to adjust the viewing lens now.
