Mount identification before getting an adapter

Hi guys,

I need some help identifying a mount of which the owner claims that it is a Olympus mount.
I asked him what mount it was, so I could get the right adapter and he said that his grandfather who used the lens did it on a Olympus OM2.
What do you say?
Thanks for your help in advance!

I think it is a OM adapter on a T-mount. If you remove it and get a native T-mount adapter for your system you get a much sturdier combination for such a big lens.

I agree, it's a T Mount for OM. The lens release button on the side is a giveaway.

I'd seen that & was looking for the second (stop down) button I've always had on OM mount. But I suppose that's not applicable to T mount lenses...

Tamron AD adapters don't have that either, don't know why, maybe too difficult to engineer?

A somewhat belated respons but I have been very busy.... Cool
Thanks for the info, it seems that the seller was right in assuming it was an Olympus mount.
But I ended up buying another lens than this one so in the end the info was no longer needed.
Here's a pic of the one I bought, the Zeiss Sonnar Olympia 180mm f2.8 with EXA/Exakta mount which was in pristine condition.
PS: The 'stripes' in the light reflection are caused by my blinds who are above my desk.

Today I received the Exakta/Nex adapter and was able to take a few pics with the lens mounted on my Sony A7III.
Here's how that looks like. Cool
