    So i got this lens at a thrift store and cant find any information on it. i think its a nikon mount, but i have no idea. all that i no is that its a Promatic 135mm f/2.8-22 lens. I am wondering if it is a nikon mount, if its a good lens and maybe what its worth.

    Looks like the F mount, mount it and see what happens.

    Looks to be a non-AI F mount. (you can tell by the solid ears on the side) It will fit on a Nikon camera but not on the newer ones (except the D40 and D60 I think- Google is your friend here)

    If you have a newer Nikon and want to use this then do a search for DIY AI-ing.

    DO NOT put this on your camera unless you know it is ok to do so otherwise you will likely damage you camera.

    It would help if you had photos of it up.
