It's a cheap eBay adapter I bought over a year ago to try these lenses on a NEX 7. Works fine on the a7, but I plan to purchase a higher quality adapter. This one has a little play in both the camera mount and the lens mount.

As waldo-posth suggested me, I added a category for multi-mounts (third party) lenses to deal with third party lenses that can show up in many different mounts.
If you are adding a lens like that, please mention in the description that it can come in different mounts and when you add photos in a thread, please mention which mount you used for those photos.

Just to be difficult. What about lenses that don't exactly have a mount?

Cinema projector lenses were mounted but not in any way useful to us. The best were treated as 70mm cylinders to be clamped into position. From the sides.

To make things even more dificult they are primes that must fill a screen from a fixed distance. That means they were made in a vast range of focal lengths each in small quantities. So how to catagorise them? In my mind the most useful piece of infomation is optical formula.

Although they have nether iris nor helicoid they make such good portrait lenses that they are worth the adapting. Especialy to STF.

Huh? it still is a mount. Maybe create a thread just for projector lenses - I guess that it is just a limited market. Could you share some samples? It is a moot question if you don't want to share pictures...
