Thanks for the help. glenn stevens
Glenn--My M8 had the same issue out of the box with both of my lenses. The infinity adjustment for your M8 is really easy to do with a 2mm allen wrench. (The moon is the suggested infinity target for adjustments.) Yes, it's annoying that it isn't adjusted correctly "out of the box" but the fix is painless.
Scroll down to pascal_meheut's January 18th post for photos and details (and use the Moon as your infinity target when performing the adjustment):
