    New amateur photographer here with a Sonny a6000, I just purchased this lens on Ebay and was told it was a Minolta MD mount (witch I have the adapter for) but when I received the package yesterday I was very excited but to my not so good surprise it was not. I was wondering if any of you good folks in here may be able to identify this mount from looking at some pictures of the lens so I can purchase the proper adapter to e-mount? Thank you in advance and any information comments or DSC00943.JPG DSC00942.JPG DSC00945.JPG tips are appreciated.

    Hi Adrian,
    I have a later similar lens in Nikon mount and noticed it has an N/AI marked on the grey part of the lens mount. To be sure, I'd suggest you take it to a camera shop and ask if they can ID it for you, and demonstrate mounting it on a camera if you're not sure of their expertise on the subject.
    Here's a shot of my mount showing the N/AI marking.

    That's an Olympus OM mount.

    I own the version 2 of that lens in Nikon mount. Yours is a Kiron made lens and I believe excelled in sharpness at the long end.

    After taking a look at the link above I believe xXx1 and WNG are correct and it appears to me as being a OM mount. Thank you all for your help, of to buy a OM mount....
