    I almost looks likd a canon FD but I know that is wrong, the aperture-linkage is missing, Gimme a little wile, I might find it looking into the Canon R mount a little more.

    *EDIT*

    Image repost for those who can not see it

    I can not for the life of me find a picture of the breech lock of a Canon R mount...Kinda having difficulty with Leica R mount and Canon EOS/Leica R mount adapters.

    Wow, that's a lens mount??? Amazing how lens technology has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. I've got no idea :confused:.

    This in a Canon FD mount, Other than the aprature linkage and metering pin they are similar.

    Could it be a preset (non-auto aperture) FD lens - ie no aperture linkage required?

    Best,

    I have never heard of preset FD lenses like that but that does ont mean they don't exits so....

    Negitive, Metering pin is still MIA preset FL possibly


    but my guess is still R

    Preset T-mount lenses are available. All they would need is a T-mount to FD adapter ring wouldn't they? Could this be one such lens? There is no metering connection required for a preset lens, metering is carried out at the working aperture.

    Best,
    Helen
