Default What mount is this lens?

I've bought a Centon 24mm f2.8 on eBay. I haven't received it yet and I'm wondering what mount this lens uses so I can get an adapter for it. To my knowledge, the lens is a Minolta MD mount but others have said it's a Pentax K. Can anyone share light on this? Thank you!

Best bet is to email the person that sold it to you. From a quick google search, it seems that the Minolta mount is the more common one.

Was there to be a picture of the mount or were we to use a crystal ball to see what it looked like?

Centon is a Chinese manufacturer that made clones of Minolta cameras (MD mount) and Pentax cameras (K mount). The Minolta clone was more common, but it could be either.

A few photos of the mount from various angles would be a great help.

Centon also made some lenses for the Konica.

Unfortunately, I emailed the guy selling it asking what mount it was, no reply. Also the description on the lens itself was extremely basic, not evening showing the mount. He also said "some surface scratches", does that mean on the glass or the body? I'm almost regretting buying it, since it was an impulse buy XD

Wait until it shows up, then post some pictures. A lot of old lenses can be mounted on modern cameras with a $12 adapter. I use some of my 40 year old Contax/Yashica lenses on my Canon''s. Be patient.

You could always pick up an EOS M... then you can use pretty much whatever lens you want
