I just bought this Zeiss 180 2.8 but... What is the mount???
I need to adapt it to a Canon Eos.

I think we'll need some more photographs showing side views. At the moment it doesn't seem to have a mount.

I haven't other photos of the mount. Just those...
It's a Zeiss Sonnar. I don't think Zeiss sell lenses without a mount. Please if someone know the answer or the history of this lens...

It seems like a Zeiss Jena lens, rather than the West German glass,

looks like M42 mount Zeiss Jena Sonnar 180mm. the shutter tab of the M42 mount is visible on the rear image. but the lens rear cap is on in side images so can't be absolutely sure because the mount is not visible on those. 

you can just measure the mount diameter, if it's 42mm then it's the M42 (no T2 mount on those lenses as far as I know)

That's why I wanted to see the side of the mount. It seemed very shallow.

But if the red tab is the stop-down lever, then it figures, but isn't the stop-down pin too close to the thread?

Mark, everyone could recognize an m42 from a lateral photo. I made this post because I need some one that recognize it from THIS photo. Someone that know the Zeiss History and the mounts. I think it's an M42, as Aapo said. Thanks to all. When it will arrive I'll know it for sure.
