This lens says "Raynox Tele Auto MC 3.5 200mm" - any idea what mount it could be?

This appears to be the Minolta MC/MD mount. The giveaway is the aperture actuation lug inside the bayonet mount, and the notch in one of the bayonet tabs opposite the aperture lug, at the upper-left position of the bayonet ring in your 2nd photo.

Note, that "MC" probably doesn't mean MC mount in this case. It probably means "multi-coated".

  • \$\begingroup\$ I also thought it looked like a Minolta, so much so that I tried to put it on my Minolta Dynax 500si. But I guess that camera is AF mount and thus will not take MC/MD mount? \$\endgroup\$ Jun 24, 2017 at 18:59

    \$\begingroup\$ Just to clarify, Minolta AF mount (which is what Sony calls A mount after they bought Minolta) is not the same as Minolta's old MC/MD/SR mounts \$\endgroup\$
