Summicron 50mm DR or infinity lock button on Leitz lenses problem

    Was looking forward to using my Summicron 50mm Dual Range on my Pen but the adapter I have won't let it. Same goes for the old button lock Leitz lenses. You have to take the lens out of infinity lock because the button releases toward the body and is restricted by the wider
    adapter. With the Dual Range, close focusing necessitates shifting the lens toward the camera body producing the same obstacle. Any solutions or can you recommend a particular adapter that doesn't get in the way.

    Thanks,

    Another question: I have the Voightlander adapter which does not allow me to focus further than 6 feet because the lens has too much hardware (black half ring in back) on the back of the lens that meets the inside of the adapter preventing further focusing. Does the Fotodiox work with it?
