The seller has no idea, and of course neither do I.
It's a Vivitar 400mm f5.6.
Looks like a Canon FD mount, perhaps?
Please can someone help me with lens mount ID and fast? I have a Kiron 70-210mm f/4 Macro MC lens that I sold to someone on eBay and I used research for this lens to list it and found one like it that said it was a K-mount for Pentax. Now I am not sure. I came across a Pentax K1000 camera and I assume that's a k-mount camera, but this Kiron lens doesn't fit. The buyer has Pentax, I think he said "PK mount". Can someone look at the pix and tell me if this lens is a K mount or if it isn't....what type of mount it is? Thanks so much for the help!
Could be a Contax/Yashica mount??... like this one...
Mount ID help for KIRON 70-210MM F4 MACRO 1:4 MC PENTAX PK FIT ZOOM LENS
Thanks so much for responding so fast! Hmm.....it doesnt look like the photo you posted - here's another shot from straight on.
- I've seen that mount before on the one you posted, the tab thing moves in and out. This one I have has 2 fixed tabs (my apologies, I am not even close to being an expert on this stuff so I am sure I am using all the wrong camera wording).
Here's more pix
All the elements seem to be there...
A, B, C, and D are rotary tabs (same shape, sizes and sequence).
E is a square notch taken out of one of the three flanges with a sloped edge preceding the notch.
If you don't get any other responses, go to google image search and just type all the different bayonet mounts and compare them. The Contax/Yashica is the only mount I could find that resembles the mount on your Kiron.
Here's one listed on eBay that could be the same lens and mount...

Wow, nice work!!! Thank you - that is EXACTLY what I have, though mine does not have fungus in it - mine looks like new. I guess I better email the buyer and refund his money and relist mine with the correct info - I am assuming that type of mount is not compatible with a Pentax PK or K mount. This is all so confusing to me - just give me a point and shoot and that's about all I can handle. Well, I do have a nice Nikon Coolpix and I am wanting to get a Canon Rebel T3 but that will probably take me forever to figure out. Anyway, thanks again....your comparison photo with the A, B, C, D & E side-by-side shot brought it all in to view for me.
