Unfortunately your lens is one of the kit versions which were built as cheaply as possible with a plastic lens mount. They were never intended to be repaired, but to be fair they seem to last quite well.

A professional repair will normally cost more than the lens is worth, but you can sometimes buy new replacement mounts.

Use your favourite search engine to look for part number 1C999-488. Unfortunately they're rarely in stock whenever I've needed one. You may also want to search for a scrap lens with a good mount which you can replace yours with, but scrap lenses of the correct type usually have faulty or badly worn plastic mounts as well.

Carefully assess your lens before making the repair: unless it's in perfect working order in all respects except for the broken mount then you'll be better off buying a new or used complete replacement lens.

SOURCE: Removing bayonet from the Leica R 60mm Macro Elmarit 2cam

I eventually used a dremel and cutting disc to cut through the bayonet in two places.I covered the rear elements with tape and focused the lens at a close distance.Once the mount is cut you can remove it but do it carefully to catch the ball bearing and spring.Clean everything and install nikon mount.My 1st type 60mm now works very well even at infinity.

Yes, if it is a K style bayonet, it will work - Pentax allows any K mounted lens to work with all their cameras from the K1000 from 1976 to the present... BUT - don't expect auto anything... including zoom or metering... but it should allow you to use it at least... Assuming the Lens is a K mounted lens... (you can't use it if it is a Nikon F or AI style, or Canon, or Minolta, which all use a bayonet style mount...)

Toyo 500mm lens to nikon d90 mount


At the risk of being obvious, you need a Nikon mount.

The lens comes with a T-mount. This is a "universal" mount with adapters for almost any camera mount, including the Nikon F mount. If the lens doesn't come with one, get a Nikon T-mount adapter.

The lens doesn't have any electronics, so you'll be shooting completely manual. No autofocus, no autoexposure, not even any exposure help from the camera's light meter.
