No. Vivitar currently does not make any digital cameras with interchangeable lenses. They do make a film camera with interchangeable lenses: http://www.vivitar.com/products/8/professional-and-slr/34/v3800-50
Depending on the mount on the lens, it may fit a number of digital cameras from another manufacturer. For example, if the lens has a Nikon mount then it will fit onto every Nikon digital SLR model, though perhaps not all features will work with every model.
if you want to shoot Macro shots, get a digital SLR. Nothing compares. When I first started in photography, I thought one camera could do it all. After many frustrating years I found out photography was much like golf. You don't want to use a putter to tee off, nor a wood 6 feet from the cup. Design is the key word here. Perhaps you should save your money and instead of spending it on fixes, repairs and returns, keep it for family outings, etc., and get any of the great DSLR Nikons out there for shots where you want to catch the individual hairs on a bumble bee's back.
Salespeople are not the ones to consult when you are looking for a camera that can do "other things." They will usually will tell you "it does everything including washing your dishes!" When they look at you they see a dollar sign. Research instead first. There are some web sites out there that will specify what kind of camera was used to create a shot, or photographers willing to give their secrets away on how a shot was done. You'll find Coolpix models are not the usual choice for that custom shot you really want.
Mac, you will depending on the type of wildlife you are wanting to photograph you will probably need something marked with at least 300mm on it. Nikon have lenses in this range at different price levels. I suggest that you maybe look at the 75 - 300mm, from memory it has VR on it... important for use at the 300 mm setting to help reduce camera shake.
Hi. No you can't shoot by viewing the LCD, only by using the eye-level viewfinder. Some SLR cameras have "live-view", which lets you use either the eye-level finder or the LCD. It really isn't a very good method of shooting with an SLR, as you first have to lock the mirror up, compose your shot, then drop the mirror back down. Using the eye-level finder also blocks out the bright light that makes the LCD difficult to use in sunlight. Hope this helps answer your question.
You have named several excellent digital SLR cameras aimed at the top end of the amateur/semi professional market.
I have the Nikon D200 and have been very pleased with it.
As stated by JCDill, you must really decide what you want and can afford. The camera body you choose will commit you down one path or another. For example, if you choose Canon, only Canon or OEM (Other Equipment Manufacturers) such as Sigma lenses will fit your camera body. Canon have a good reputation for their auto-focus, while Nikon make lenses that are the envy of others.
If this is your first digital SLR then you might be best buying an entry level body with a multi-purpose zoom lens such as the Nikon D40. There is a lot to learn.
If you are converting from film SLR and already have a set of lenses, then the cameras you mentioned will probably be able to use your existing lenses (but this is less so with Canon than Nikon). I was ecstatic to disover that my old Nikon 500mm mirror lens works in manual mode (with metering displayed) on my Nikon D200 but would not work properly on my Nikon D70.
I hope this helps.
Hi, Sigma does make plenty lens option in both ranges you are looking at, you may want to consider a zoom lens that will work for you. What type of photography do you do? That will help determine your lens selection choices. keep in mind that it is more important to purchase the highest quality lens you can afford rather than several lower quality versions. If you are looking at a 300 mm lens to capture sporting events or nature photography you will have determine is it going to be daylight or low light because a lens that works in lower light situation will cost many times more than one with less capability. If you like the wide angle to take photos of interiors the same goes as far a price. You may also want to consider your camera's brand of lens, the Nikkor lens and even look a the VR lenes (vibration Reduction). There is an 18-200mm1:3.5-5.6 that is pretty versitile and will work in a lot of situations from portraits to full standing poses and take great interior shots. The VR lenses are a little more pricey but allow you to hand hold the camera for pretty slow exposures. I know that is a lot to think about but it's important not to waste you hard earned money on lens combinations that won't be useful for what you want to shoot.
