The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.

KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.

Zuiko 70-300mm lens focusing problem


Haha!!
Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,
LOL.

Canon Vivitar 75-205MM Macro (compatibility?)


If the Vivitar has an FD mount for older Canons, then no, you'll need an adapter ring to convert the lens. They are available on sites like ebay

I can't get the macro adapter to work ?


Put the macro adapter on the camera and move the camera in and out from an object to try to focus the object in the display. Remember, macro is very small, very close and very small field-of-focus. I hope this helps.

Using vivitar 70-300 lens


Yes and yes. Bear in mind that not all features may work. You probably won't get autofocus or metering with the Nikon D90, for example.

Lens for Nikon D60


I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

Need to find lense


I think the most prudent solution is to give up on the idea. What do you need that for? This lens already has a huge range of 28 .. 300 mm in film equivalents, and it is marginally useful at 300 mm. Whatever else you put on it will make it worse (less light, poor focus and aberrations). Similarly, at the wide end, while it is technically possible to add a wide-angle element to shorten the focal distance to about 20 mm, that will also result in a loss of light and poor peripheral focus, so you will be much better off taking 2-3 pictures and blending them whenever you need a wider angle. This lens is a miracle of optimization -- it already has the attachments you are contemplating, plus macro and super-macro. I don't think its range can be expanded any further without an unacceptable degradation of quality.

Trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens


It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.
