Yes, the focusing is accomplished with a lever on the right side which seems to have positive stops at certain distances set in meters. I don't yet have a way of getting setting the front standard at infinity, however, so I don't know how well it works. The slide is really frustrating. I worked on it today for about 30 minutes, looking for a way to free the standard from the track. The knurled knobs in the front turn (with some force) but do not loosen up or come free. They simply revolve around a center post - no effect at all on the movement of the camera as far as I can see.

One good thing -- the Rollex back does fit my Rietzschel Clack! I'll try to get some shots in this week but time is tight.
