    It looks like a cine lens.

    What is the diameter of the mount threads. If 1" then it's a C-mount lens and almost certainly designed for 16mm. If it's 0.625" (5/8") then it's a D-mount lens designed for 8mm.

    C-mount lenses can be adapted with some success to m43. D-mount lenses, on the other hand, can't except for special macro use. Their flange distance is too short and their coverage is way too small.
