Does anybody has experience with Vixen lenses ?

I have bought a Vixen LVW13mm lens and I 'm very happy with it. It is almost parfocal with the original Meade 26mm (SuperPlossl series 4000) delivered with my LX200 8" SCT.

Then I bought a 8mm LVW and, to my surprise, this one is NOT parfocal nor with the Vixen 13mm, nor with the Meade 26mm !!

This implies refocussing a lot when changing lenses !

Is it normal or is it a factory default ?

Thx for any information in this regard .
