    Besides the fact that it's an off brand this would give me a bit of concern.

    Wanting glass and getting good glass are two different things.

    One thing I leaned a long time ago....buy quality once and you won't have to buy again.

    Isn't it one of those mirror lenses, really horrible IQ and the only thing worse than that is its speed?

    It's not a mirror lens. It's too long and too skinny.

    That looks like an M42 (screw mount.) But even if it's not a K-mount, adapters can be had for less than $20 on e-Bay.
