[langtitle=sv]What mount is this?[/langtitle]

First, sorry if I put this in wrong forum....

Anyway, I was offered to buy this Soligor 400 mm lens for 28$ or so.
What mount may it be? I know its hardly visible, but what should I expect? The seller doesn't know (doesn't seem like she knows much about cameras/lenses at all).

Is it a T, M42, K, something completely different?

Mount in not visible but in any case I would buy it for $28. If mount is different, changing would not be difficult and for $28, wont be any major risk either

Looks like T-mount lens with some sort of Bayonet adapter attached. Too small picture to tell. Because of the lens age - very likely it's K. 28$ is a good price for any 400mm prime. I think even those worse plastic 500mm goes for more. This should be at least decent.

I have this same lens. It is not a T-mount lens. That silver mount is threaded on to the body with large course threads. I've never seen just the K mount piece sold alone anywhere.

Here is what the threads look like, and their diameter.

Dammit, too late again. Sold

*thread locked*

Even though, its interesting. Are there adapters for this type of mount or would it demand some mechanical fine works?

I've never seen just the mount part available by itself.
I imagine you could fab something with the mount on the lens with some machining.

Speculating this mount is from the time pre-auto-diaphram when manufacturers were experimenting with the one lens, many screw-on mounts concept epitomised later with the Tamron Adaptall-2 mount system.

Later, with auto-diaphram, Soligor had its proprietary C/D mounts.

I have two old Vemar preset lenses with a very similar screw mounting that has 49mm threads. Luckily, one of them has the Nikon adapter.

Now I found a 250mm f.4.5 for 14$, again from someone not knowing anything about lenses...Worth the price? And without photo of the mount. Do the 250mm have different type of mounts? When googling it seems they are likely to be T-mount, could I be sure of that or not?

Price seems okay to me. Ask the seller for a photo of the mount, preferably at an angle rather than straight-on? Note that if the lens IS a T or T2 (with auto-diaphram pin) mount the mount shown in the photo might be unscrewed to reveal the T/T2 threads. Soligor used both T2 and their proprietary C/D mount. A photo of the lens posted here might help us say which.
