K-Mount Identification

Looking at a lens on ebay but seller can not confirm the mount.

I'm unable to be 100% sure from the pictures if its K-mount so wondered if anyone could assist (already asked for additional pictures and this is what the seller sent me).

At first glance, this looks more like an Olympus OM mount. These have two rectangular, spring loaded buttons directly opposite-ish each other. That’s the easiest way to visually identify an OM mount lens, as no other lens mount shares this.

There's a useful guide at 35mm SLR Lens mount identification guide

Cheers John. I think you are right, it looks like OM. The seller has a load more OM gear up for sale so this would make sense. I don't understand why they did'nt try it out on the OM-10 they had listed!

Here's another good lens mount guide, I like the one already posted too.

I agree this looks like the Olympus mount, the two opposing pins and the small metal pin toward the bottom both are consistent with OM.
