    The box says its a 135mm Telephoto lens made by Sears. It also says "Canon C-Mount".

    This doesn't look like the c-mounts I see on ebay and easily adapted to m4/3 cameras. Any ideas?

    Also, there's a locking ring closest to the mount. When a small pin is pushed in, the ring rotates. In this state the aperture adjustment is fully manual. Turn it back and allow the pin and ring to fall back into a locked position and the aperture is fully open at all times.

    looks to me like an early canon fd breech mount. Hard to see detail in the pic.

    Anything I can take a pic of, better angles, that could help?

    I recently got one of these Sears FD 135's in a bag of lenses on auction. Prorated, it cost me $2.33. I already had an FD adapter. It's a solid, well made kens, but they were just learning how to coat them in the 70's. There's so much purple in this shot (resized, not a crop).
