Identifying 35mm SLR lens mounts from pictures?

Dear Board,

I apologize if this question has been covered. I tried to search with little luck.

I know all the easy ones like Nikon F, Canon FD/FL and Pentax M42 and K because I have cameras with those lens mounts.

What I am wondering is there a source either here, or on the internet, that identifies lenses by their mounts?

Regards,

Tim Murphy

There is a guide at West Yorkshire cameras, but their website is down for a shop move and maintenance.

Mind you, they mistook a Praktina mount for an Exacta on a lens I bought, but I found it out in the end...

I applaud Rick for this list however it isn’t complete at all.
What about a fresh thread where everyone could upload a photo of a mount ?
Later there could be a downloadable list in pdf format...

I never realized, there are alot of them!

Typed in Google:

photography lens mounts descriptions

Made me dizzy looking at this article in Wiki:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lens_mount

Whew!

Fortunately, my camera makes are few!

Google "lens mount identification." Besides Oleson's there is a comprehensive three-part guide from KEH: <https://www.keh.com/blog/the-lens-mount-guide-part-1/>, <https://www.keh.com/blog/the-lens-mount-guide-part-2/>, and https://www.keh.com/blog/the-lens-mount-guide-part-3/.

I guess I was looking in the wrong places, or using the wrong search terms, but now it looks like things are pretty well covered for me!
