will not focus an distant objects. Will an extension tube solve this problem? No, extension tubes allow focusing closer but at the same time prevent focusing to infinity. It shifts your focus range down. It sounds like your lens needs readjustment or repair. Start with a close inspection: any loose parts, rattling, buildup of grease? Does the ...

And I'd say it all depends on which mirrorless camera you end up getting and what type of manual focusing assist features it offers.

The entire focus ring can actually click forward or backwards. When it's back, a distance scale is exposed and the lens is in manual focus mode. When it's forward, autofocus. You must have moved it inadvertently. Push it ...
