    Today I received my Rokkor 55mm 1.7 and adapter for M43. But the aperture blades in the lens was filled with oil and dust. I havent given much for the lens. (5$) so thought I could clean it. It also went well, it all seems almost like it should. But if i try to focus on something further away than 15 meters, it cant. When i turn the focus ring to infinity, it only goes about 15 meters. Is this normal or did I assembled it wrong. Otherwise, I am very happy with the lens, it has a good DOF.

    Hope someone can help. Otherwise Ill just buy one more:)
