What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?


I'm afraid this will not work.
The filter size from the Nikon is 67 mm. and your vivvitar had a 52 mm tread. The step down convertor from 67 to 52 will block to much to use the wide-angle convertor.
I think you still will see a wider part in the centre of the frame, but in the end, the vignetting that takes place, will leave you with only a part of the picture to use. What stays will be smaller than what you pick up with the lens in the 18 mm setting.

Just try what you see, when you just hold the vivitar in front of the lens and shoot a picture. Take care you don't scratch the front lens of your 18-135. put a cheap UV filter, when you want to test.
See you only have a circular picture with this test.

I have a 12-24 lens and only use it once a year, so if you don't have a special purpose for a wide angle, don't bother buying one.

Need to convert a Vivitar 70-150mm telephoto from Canon TX to Nikon FTn mounts


Vivitar made several different 70-150mm lenses. If the lens has a T-mount then you can purchase a Nikon T-mount adapter and replace the Canon one on the lens. If the lens does not have a T-mount then you're out of luck. Nikon cameras have thicker bodies than Canon cameras, and an adapter would have to have negative physical size.

Will the Vivitar SI 70-210 mount on my Nikon D90. Will the AF work properly? Thanks


Vivitar makes lenses for a variety of cameras, so a lens for a Canon, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon. Assuming the Vivitar lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, it will mount on the D90 and yes, it will autofocus properly on the D90.

That depends. If the Quantaray lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, no problem, it'll work on the D80. If it has a different mount, then it won't fit onto the D80.

Vivitar telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.

Adapter


it depends what mount your vivitar lenses have - you can easily search ebay for mount adaptors that will allow you to use most older lenses on the 4/3 body, but you will only be able to use manual focus and need to work in aperature priority or fully manual mode. A generic adaptor for a OM, Nikon, Pentax or Contax mount should cost around $20. you should read up on them as there are some differences with how they are made and function, but basically are just mechanical coupling devices that fit the lense to the camera. remember, you lose all automatic features
