That looks just like mine. I have a EF bayonet on mine and a calibrated EF-NEX adapter for the NEX cameras. The Macro-Elmarit-R 60/2.8 is the only prime lens I've seen that doesn't have any form of infinity focus adjustment. I took it completely apart and no adjustment I could find. I adjusted mine by varying the thickness of the EF bayonet spacer. It's a tad front heavy on the NEX, but nothing a good grip can't handle.
