Hanimex 28mm Automatic MC

Hi,

Im just wondering if anybody knows what mount this lens uses and if it will fit a pentax?

I've got some pictures but unfortunately I don't own the lens yet therefore i didn't take the pictures so they are not very helpful

Just to add it says: "Bayonet type fitting"

Thanks

Samuel

I could be wrong but think that the MC means it is a Minolta mount. Don't think it's going to like Pentax cameras.

OK, I will soon find out, decided to get it as a Christmas present for myself at 5.99 I really can't complain if i have to put it on ebay. I though MC might stand for the coating on the lens maybe "multi coat?" but im not sure.

Thanks!

I believe the MC on the front means Multi Coated..Try looking at the back of the lens, take off the rear cap, and look back there, if it has PK or P/K stamped back there, it is a Pentax K mount, and you can mount that puppy on your camera !!

Samp, you in Australia?

Hanimex was an Australian camera gear import company. Name's from the founder's last name "Hannes", Import" and "Export".

I actually have this lens, and it's not bad. Not great, either. A bit of noticeable barrel distortion on it, but I've yet to do any real measurebating with it.

It could have been made in Japan or Germany. It's a similar story to Vivitar; get various companies to make your lenses to your specs. Mine actually looks slightly different. Unlike Vivitar, I doubt Hanimex ever strived for excellence as Vivitar did.

It could be in any bayonet-type mount from the end of WWII to the early eighties - Minolta, Nikon, Pentax, OM.

I wouldn't pay more than about $12-$15AU for this lens, but I'm notoriously cheap.

Stratman: I don't actually have the lens, its being sold by a charity shop online and all i have to go on was those two photos. So i was just seeing if anybody had the same lens really so we could compare fronts!

Lithos: Nope im in the UK, its actually being sold by Oxfam online so maybe one of you from Oz has moved here and decided they don't want it anymore! I payed 5.99 for it (not sure what the conversion is) so not a huge amount. If you could upload or Pm me a picture of the front so that we can compare that would be helpful! Thanks

So did you had the chance to test it out, was it for pentax ???

Reason i am bringing back the old thread back is because i got same lens from ebay for $9 delivered. The only reason i got it is because i needed the case for my 50mm 1.4 and looks like the case will be a good fit but don`t know if the lens is any good or not.

hoping to hear from u soon.

Thanks
