I think I do see what appears to be an adapter now that I'm looking for it, how I missed it earlier remains a mystery. The mount has two notches on the side that have some tool marks on them. Fingernails and regular twisting weren't enough to pry the thing off. I think one of those lens tools may be necessary, assuming it can even be removed at this point.

A a lens spanner, pipe wrench, or channel-lock plyers will or should be able to remove the adapter easily assuming they didn't use thread locker or glue to secure it, wrap the threads with string to protect the threads if you intend on keeping the adapter.

If they did use a thread locker, heat the adapter ring with a soldering iron or lighter to break the bond,

Firmware request:
-A button map for toggling the EVF & LCD
-Still waiting for the minimum shutter speed with auto ISO for my NEX-7 and A7r. I know it will never happen.
-Customize the display screen layout, I'd love to have both Histogram and level at the same time.
-More peaking options, being able to set peaking sensitivity and a threshold level.
-An RGB overlay on the histogram https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/602/20236258313_c604dd9522_n.jpg
-An option to return the focus assist zoom to one button press
-An option to return to how the NEX-7 handled playback, ie. center button to zoom, then you could use the control dial to zoom in and out, then center button to exit the zoom mode.
