Help identifying some lenses?

Hi all,

I'm a beginner and I recently inherited a box of old lenses that I'm having trouble finding info on.
The person who used them had a bunch of cameras, only one of which was a Pentax.
The lenses aren't K-mount but I don't know what kind of mount they are, if they could be adapted to my K-x, or (perhaps most importantly), if it'd be worth doing so.

I'm hoping you guys may have some insight-- thanks for your help!

And finally, a Tamron filter that may or may not be useful?

Those are all Canon FD mount, only useful to mirrorless users like Sony NEX or other very short register distance bodies. You're not missing that much.

That first Tiffen lens looks to me like a screw-on telephoto. It simply attaches to the front of another lens (with the correct front filter size) and provides a telephoto magnification. They usually aren't too good, but you can give it a try.
The Tamron lens may be an Adaptall, in which case, you just need an adapter. Is this the one?
The filter (last pic) is probably a decent UV type of filter that were recommended for film cameras, but it is generally not recommended for use w/ digital cameras unless you are shooting in a windy/sandy/misty/salty setting.

Tamron-F is the fixed mount version unfortunately.

You can get a little money for them on eBay--they can be adapted to many mirrorless systems.

Ah, yes... Now I notice the Tamron-F on the labeling.
