    Bought lenses don't fit. Unusable?

    I've purchased two lenses yesterday at a flea-market. Being both bayonette connection, just like on my Revueflex AC2, I thought they should fit. Back home I found out they don't. I haven't had the time to take pictures of the connections, going to do that later today.
    If it doesn't fit, can I make them fit in any way or did I buy something useless?

    #Edited# Both lenses have the DOF-button (button that shows you what apeture it's using) on the lens. The original lens has that button on the camera. If I could make the connection work, the camera wouldn't operate the apeture. When taking a picture, I would have to keep pressing (or find a way to lock this) the DOF-button until the shutter is released.

    Never seen a Revueflex let alone an AC2 but it's the same as my two Chinon CE-4 cameras so Pentax K mount bayonet, the problem is there are other very similar bayonets mounts, the Praktica bayonet is the same ount but differing connection.

    If they don't fit now unless theey hapeent to be Tamron Adaptall's you've no chance at all. You need to identify what they are and pass them on.

    Steven ,

    Now its time to look for a body to your new lenses. Dont forget to carry everything with you to prevent new failure.

    Thank you Ian Grant, for your information. The camera is a Chinon CE4 Memotron (aparantly a mailorder company named it Revueflex AC2) I'm going to look into the Adaptall option. Identification comes later today, when I'm back from work.
    @Mustafa Umut Sarac: I had the bodies in my hands but one had a cracked mirror and the other didn't have a mirror.
    To the moderator: I'm sorry I posted it in the wrong place.

    If you count variations, there are a couple dozen bayonet mounts.

    Even if the mount should fit there is no guarantee that a particular lens will work correctly. It is even possible for such a lens to damage the camera.
