    Very difficult to tell what mount it might be for. In any case it probably
    is not worth alot of money. maybe a couple of hundred CDN dollars or
    150-180 USD max.

    are there any letters insscribed on the mount that might tell for which
    camer it is meant to be used on?

    Hanimex was/is an umbrella company in Australia that purchased, rebadged
    and sold a range of photographic products mainly during the late 70's to
    early 90's. I'd be surprised if the lens you have is anything special or
    of outstanding quality. Hanimex gear was always aimed at the cheaper end
    of the market.

    I don't know if Hanimex sold outside of the Australian market.

    HTH.

    Oh, yeah, we had Hanimex here in the States, too. They owned the Vivitar
    name for a while, I believe. The construction of that lens looks a lot like
    the Vivitars of that era, mostly built by Kiron and Komura.
