Help me identify the lenses

I am checking whether i can buy these lenses (image attached). The seller says they are pentax 28, 72/210 and 135 respectively. But, I am not sure whether they are K mount or not. Can someone help me identify these lenses.

None of them are Pentax lenses. You can't tell if they are K-mount unless you can see the mount without the lens cap. The first lens on the lower left is a Vivitar 24mm f/2. The lens in the back looks like some sort of 2-touch zoom, maybe a Sigma?

The one on the right looks like a Tamron (going by the style of the rubber), and the one on the left (bottom) says Vivitar 24mm. Can't say much more without seeing the mount, though.

None appear to be Pentax brand and all appear to be sort of grungy. The only one I can ID with any certainty is the Vivitar 24/2 at lower left. The one at top looks to be a M42 (screwmount) zoom of some sort. Lower right is also a zoom (Tamron, fixed mount?) and may be K-mount.

If the Vivitar 24mm is K-mount it might be worth buying and cleaning up. It is an interesting lens for film use and would be a moderate wide angle on APS-C. I think there is a review on this site. The others are probably not worth buying.

The camera is a spottie

so the lenses are M42 rather than K mount.

For all? As mentioned, the lenses are grungy. The condition of the camera is hard to gauge. Are you sure you want this stuff? Fungus is very likely as is damage to the external lens surfaces.

Should have listened to you

I got the following stuff

Soligor 70-210 f3.5
Tamron 135 f2.8
Super Tak 55 f1.8
Super Tak 50 f1.4
Vivitar 24 f2

vivitar 235 flash - 2 pieces
spotmatic - cameras
and several filters + some other stuff.

Except for 55 1.8 and vivtar 24 all other lenses have fungus inside the glass. I am getting them to the shop today and figure out how much they cost me. If it is much, i need to throw them away or use them for my experiments.
