    What's the adapter I would need to mount the Vivitar 28mm f/2.5 auto wide angle lens? I just bought the lens today from a pawn shop for $21, not bad. Everything seems to be in working order; the blades are clean and moves effortlessly, no scratch anywhere, just little dust and a finger print on the outside of the lens.

    That depends on the mount the Vivitar lens was made for. Vivitar made lenses for nearly every SLR camera system out there. There should be some mark like "FD", "N/Ai" or "O/OM" somewhere on the aperture ring.

    There's a "K/AR" on the aperature ring, besides "LENS MADE IN JAPAN".

    K/AR could be Konica AR.

    It should be Konica even though people often mistake the marking to mean Pentax K with auto setting for Pentax and Ricoh. Pentax mounts are usually PK, PK/A, PK A/R, or PK A(P).

    Yes, it is a Konica AR mount, it's on all my Vivitar lenses that I purchased for my T and AR's back in the 80's.

    Thanks to all :) Just bought a Fotasy K/AR mount.

    This may be a dumb question.... All micro four thirds mount are the same right with other brand of micro four thirds camera?

    Yup, all µ4/3 lenses can be put on any µ4/3 camera without adapter. However, there is a difference between µ4/3 and the 4/3 mount. (there is an adapter for that)
