Trying to find information on a Cimco lens with what I think could be a Pentax K mount - any experience?

Hi all,

Hope this is the correct place to ask. I came across an old CIMCO MT lens in a second hand shop in absolute mint condition - I wanted to use it with a micro fourthirds but am having trouble identifying the mount on the CIMCO lens - I have seen it mentioned that it is similar to a pentax-k mount but wondered if anyone had come across one of these lenses previously and had used it on their Pentax. Its a bayonet type design

It was suggested that one of the Canon mounts might be the boyo to try but that didn't work. Its a longshot I know but hoping someone out there might have owned or come across one before.

Thanks in advance

I agree it has similarities to the Pentax K mount but it isn't!
My thoughts are it's a Canon FD mount, but I've never owned any of those so await confirmation or otherwise from someone else who may have.

Some Cimko mounts were interchangeable. The lenses were the same and they just screwed on whatever camera mount was needed. I think there were 5 screws holding it on and they weren't equi-distant.

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff
