    Google for pa/kpr mount, it could be native Sigma or Pentax mount.
    Good luck!

    The "SA" mount is Sigma's dedicated mount for their cameras alone and it is not comparable The Nikon "F", Canon "EOS" or 4/3rd lens mount.

    Maybe not! I checked and the registration length{distance from mount to image plane} is the same for Sigma as it is for EOS. You might be able to modify an EOS dumb mount to fit that Sigma lens. Since good 500mm lenses are hard to find it might be worth it!
