I have few Foton lenses, and all of them showed good results in terms of adjustment - infinity focus is very close to mark, so no any adjustment was necessary. But in your particular case situation may be bit different, and some adjustment may be required. Just word of caution, since there are quite high chances that it will work with your lens well enough without any adjusting.
