Versions 1 was available in M42 mount; both were definitely sold in K mount. I owned version 1 in K and have seen several in person that were M42.

Versions 2 and 3 seem to be less common in my experience, and I can't recall if I have seen either in M42, but based on when they were sold an M42 version wouldn't surprise me.

The Series 1 lenses were sold in a wide variety of mounts and I haven't seen any kind of definitive list of which mounts were offered with each version.

I've never seen an M42 Tokina or Komine version, but the Kiron ones show up often.

If you intend to use it on a DSLR the Komine is probably the best, it is the only one of the 3 available with A contacts.
