Can't be sure yet that other lenses are unaffected.  I added two near focus
images to the gallery to show that the Noctilux is in tip top shape now:

I will add an infinity photo when the haze clears and I can see some

Here is why I am not sure about the other lenses yet.  I think that near
focus issues are attenuated due to focal length or aperture on my TE (f/4),
90 Elmarit (f/2.8), 135 Apo-Telyt (F/3.4), 28 Summicron-M (f/2 but wide
angle).  They all seem okay at both near and infinity.

I am suspicious about the 50 Summicron at near focus, but I need to do some
checking on that lens, and I ran out of time.  Sorry.

Do I understand correctly that the very small cam adjustment that you made
corrected the Noctilux problems without spoiling the adjustment for other
