Is it a K-mount lens? If so, then yes. Otherwise no. If possible, could you post a picture of it?

Hi Adam, thanks for answering. this lens has been offered in a site like ebay here in Brazil. In the last pic you can see that is part of Yashika machine set. but we can't see the diameter of the lens.

On the 3rd shot, you should take off the cap to show the mount.

The bayonet is hidden on you pictures, but the bayonet cover says CO-Y. Contax-Yashica. Sorry, it won't fit directly. Maybe you can find a way to modify it.

The lens will not fit a Pentax camera. The lens bayonet could be modified to fit, but that is not really a good idea because of the lens' weight. And this very slow (f/5.6) lens is not really worth modifying, not unless you are absolutely desperate! I think you should look for a lens that will actually fit your Kr. Good luck!
