    Releasing the focus lock on the 35mm Leica Summaron

    Can someone describe how to release the focus / infinity lock on the 35mm Summaron?

    Depends which version, usually just push the release back and twist the lens, not sure on late models. The one I used was similar to my 50mm Summicron.

    It isn't the M3 version. I worked out the problem is actually with the focusing mechanism clogging up, so it will need servicing.
