I've a pentacon auto 200/4, the six blades version. Taking some shots, two days ago, I noticed that it was impossible to focus to infinity: no problems with the adapter (all other M42 lenses focus properly).
Is there an easy way to fix it?

Does it screw properly to the mount so that the upside is really up? If not - inspect the threads.

Perhaps it was opened and not perfectly built again, if no problem with mount.

Thank you, boys.

Unfortunately, the lens is broken. Making a test, today, I felt a scratch while focusing. After, the lens focussed past infinity. I took it apart, and found a missing screw, two bended slides, a little disaster.
I'll try to repair it.
Fortunately, I have another 200, a Jupiter 21, and prefer this one.

One of the next purchases will b a 180, or something.

Probably Attila's opinion is true. I have also Pentacon 4/200, but it focuses beyond infinity. Somebody had opened and not built up properly. I have turn one round plus or minus the whole lens group inside! I think.
