Back in the day, Sears made lenses for just about everybody. My best guess would be to look at the back lens cap and see if there is an initial or ? telling you what kind of mount. Most bass lens caps had an identifying mark or letters K-Pentax, NK or N - Nikon, M-Minolta and Canon was a C, I believe.


Good idea. The lens cap and rear cap look to be generic though, the only thing on the lens cap is the thread size.

These lens look like Pentax or Canon to me but can't be sure. I'm sure someone will chime in.

I did hear Sears made alot of lenses for most camera mfgs and they were quite decent in quality.
