    hi everybody,
    I'm bout to order a used lens but I'm confused as the seller didn't mention the lens mount and i found many versions of it.
    i attached pictures of the lens, would you please help me know the mount, i suspect it's k mount but I'm not sure.

    thanks.

    Hard to see the mount in those pictures. Maybe someone that knows a little bit more about the variety of mounts can help you.

    I was curious though, any particular reason why you chose this lens? I actually have that lens laying around that I got in a box of camera gear (Konica AR mount) but have never tried it.

    The pix don't show the mount very well so it is impossible to say with any certainty what mount it is.

    That said, it seems to be a basic m42 (aka "Pentax" or "Praktica") thread mount complete with an A/M switch.

    Yep, that's it. In those days, Vivitar identified that mount with the "M" designation - but I don't believe there is an A/M switch there

    if that's the case then i can't order it, i had an offer for free customs so i was going to use it and order couple of lenses, maybe I'll look for something else then.

    thanks guys.
