Identify this lens...

I am having a bit of trouble positively identifying this lens, more importantly the mount. I've had it for some time now and I'd like to get rid of it if only I knew what it fit. The rear cap says ZE on it.Anyone care to take a stab at it?

Mamiya E/EF mount

Mamiya is an interesting company. They started out with the M42 screw mount above, and then in 1971 introduced a bayonet mount. Then in 1975 they introduced a DIFFERENT bayonet mount. Then in 1980 they introduced ANOTHER different bayonet mount. This is the last one, which fits the ZE, ZE-2, ZE-X and ZM camera models. With that much uncertainty regarding their design approach, it may not be a shock that Mamiya gave up on 35mm SLRs altogether after that. (Many thanks to Chris Moller for the photo of this mount, which I proved unable to identify)
