Eiki lenses are not threaded, as are Elmo or Kodak lenses e.g. Turning
them by hand does nothing. If the focus knob fails to engage the lens,
your only option is to attempt to slide the lens forward and back in the
housing. Only with an incredibly delicate touch can one find focus this
way. On slot load models, the lens is also difficult to reach.

Perhaps Frameworkers should avoid making nasty little arch comments on
subjects of which they have little or no knowledge...
