    Question Need help figuring out U-mount lens compatibility

    A friend of mine recently acquired a Sears 28mm MC f/2.8 (mod# 199.737290) film lens. I can't find any info on it in particular or U-mount lenses in general. The only indicator of the mount is a "U" on the bottom of the lens by the body cap. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Photos would make it much easier to assist. I do recall that Sears had rebranded a line of rather cheap SLRs in the mid 70s (Praktika?), so there's a good chance it's an M42 mount.
