Okay. I have three lenses I need help with.

Quantaray 1:4~5.6 35-80mm
Sigma mini-wide 1:2.8 28mm
Kalimar 1:2.8 28mm

Right. So heres the problem. No one I've talked to have even heard of the first lens. Google came up with the same lens but upgraded as auto focus for canons. Mine is manual focus for pentax. Pics of the lens:

So its real... Does anyone have ANY information on it?!

As for the other lenses they are made for pentax. however:

they are obviously not k-mount! can anyone tell me what the would fit on? The last picture is VERY close to a k-mount, but the metal part around it is too small to be put on.

The first lens is an older Ritz Camera house brand lens. They made the autofocus version later. I'm pretty sure that lens is a rebranded Sigma. As for the other two, I'm not sure about their mounts. I have mounted a few older third party K-mount MF lenses that have felt a little small or wobbly on my K20D.

thanks for the info. The lens doesnt feel loose, you can put it on the camera and the metal that connects it to the camera doesnt come close to it! haha

I can't tell which lens which photo is intended to refer to, but there may be markings somewhere on one of those lenses or on any rear caps that could yield a clue for certain. One almost looks like someone hacked a Canon FD mount lens to fit something else, though I feel likeI'mblanking on something obvious. Still, there's some rather suspicious marks like file marks on the mount. Probably means someone found it unsatisfactory for some purpose or other.
