I picked up this lens for ten bucks for the 67mm Hoya filter on it and then discovered that it has a good reputation for IQ. The bayonet-type mount seems to fit a Pentax SLR body that I have but the EBay listings don't show a Pentax mount. I don't know the various mounts: can it be some other mount? Minolta,Canon, Konica, ?? I am considering a twenty dollar adapter to allow it fit my D600, but I need to be sure that I am ordering the right one since it will come from China. I do a lot of MF macro and enjoy exploring the subtle differences between the different lenses. I am expecting a $300 200mm Micro Nikkor MF in the next few days so the bee and butterfly photos are going to increase exponentially. Tom
