Is there a difference?

Owen Automatic 1:2.8 135mm Front element is 55mm.

I have a canon DSLR and would like to mount this lens to it. I don't know which mount to buy.

Thank you!

Hi Jamie,

that's an old Nikon, pre-AI quite possibly. You can see the rabbit ears for the meter coupling ridge present on old Nikon F bodies. Interesting lens though. Why not buy a Nikkor? The 135/2.8 can be had for a song these days. But it's not that good a lens. Might as well go for 135/2!

Cheers, Dave

I bought this lens for $5 from a consignment store :)

I just needed to know what adapter to buy for my canon. You sure it's nikon? Thank you!
