Rokinon Automatic Wide MC 1:2.8 28mm Lens, what type of connection is this?
I am new in photography, i 've just started to love photography after lot of effort to buy DSLR camera. My gear is cheap NIKON D5000 using standard Nikkor Dx 18-55mm lens. Recently i bought few cheap manual lenses as i prefer to use manual lens instead motorized lens (considering price of course) .
I have a problem with one Rokinon Automatic Wide MC 1:2.8 28mm Lens, I have no idea what type of mounting & adaptor shall i provide as it does not fit my Nikon D5000 camera.
Thanks a lot guys.

Try looking here:
SLR Lens Mount Identification Guide
BTW, if it isn't a Nikon mount, chances are there won't be a simple adapter that will allow it to mount on a Nikon body - the Nikon flange to sensor distance is bigger than most other makes and won't allow it to focus to infinity. There may be an adapter with a lens in it to allow infinity focus, but I doubt that it would be worth pursuing because of cost and quality issues.http://www.flickr.com/photos/54311838@N00/

IF this were a Rokkor lens, MC would mean Minolta manual focus mount. Which is not the same as the Minolta AF mount that Sony Alpha shares (think Canon FD vs. Canon EOS).
But this is a Rokinon third-party (like Sigma/Tamron/Tokina), so no guarantee the MC means anything about the mount. Probably just means "multi-coated". And their lenses are made to multiple mount systems. And Aegea's advice is good: if it ain't Nikon F, chances are good you can't use it.
