Tamron used to make Adaptall lenses, a system that allowed you to interchanged lenses to different mounts by simply replacing an adapter, instead of buying new lenses. There were the 'Adapt-A-Matic' which only lasted 4 years from 1968-1972, then followed by the Adaptall, and the improved Adaptall 2 ecosystem.

Many third party lens makers also came up with their own interchangeable mount system -- the universal T-mount created by Tamron in the 1960s (T = Taisei Kogakku), Sigma's YS mount (YS = Yamaki System, based on the T-mount) also used by Sun Optical and many others, Tokina's TX mount (based on T-mount) eclusively used by Soligor and Vivitar.

The Adpatall lenses are pretty easy to use, and they also support auto diaphragm. For beginners, I made a short video that shows you:

1) The difference between an authentic Adaptall adapter vs. a cheap third party adapter

2) How to mount an adaptall adapter

3) The difference of auto vs. manual diaphragm

4) ADDITION: I forgot to mention in the video, that genuine adapters also support aperture coupling.
