    Hi all, just a quick question: is a fixed mount in fact m42?

    I came across a vivitar 28mm 2.8 online. But the seller told me its a fixed mount lens and she knew nothing more. The (very blurry) pic she sent me looks vaugely like a m42.

    Does anyone know if it is in fact a m42? Or could it be other mount?

    Many thanks

    A fixed mount is an eBay term for 'I don't have a clue what I'm doing' :)

    Sounds like the seller is describing a fixed mount vs an interchangeable mount like the Tamron Adaptall2 system.

    I think this is most likely the correct answer. :thiagree:

    A mount that was once broken but is now fixed?
