Mitakon Wide MC 28mm f2.8

Hello to everyone!
I have bought this lens for my pentax MX because the seller on ebay said to me that it is K Mount but I have discovered that the lens doesn't fit the camera.
Do you know if i can use this lens in some way on the MX or do I have to give it back?
I attach an image of the back of the lens

Looks like you have an Canon FD lens there. You'll probably have to send it back unless their is some adapter that can merge FD to K.

+1. Only of use on mirrorless (and old canon film cameras).

Yeah he could go the mirrorless route but if I was going to use I would buy the Ae-1 just to have one lol

There isn't really any bad manual 28mm.

The Sigma Super Wide (24mm) or Mini Wide (28mm) are good and usually cheap in manual focus. The Pentax M 28/3.5 or 2.8, are good too. The Ricoh Rikenon XR 28/2.8, the Auto Chinon 28/2.8 etc.
