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.

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.

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

SOURCE: Will the Vivitar SI 70-210

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.

No, and no.

The lens will not work on a Nikon camera.

Nikon cameras are deeper than Canon cameras. Even if a Canon lens fit onto a Nikon body, it would not focus at infinity. In order to enable a Canon lens to focus at infinity on a Nikon body, a lens adapter would have to have a negative thickness.

Vivitar Series 1 lenses were available with a variety of lens mounts for different camera makes. If the lens has a Nikon mount then it will work on a Nikon D80. If it has some other mount then it will not fit.

It's called "zoom creep" and not all that uncommon. You can try sliding a sheet of paper or a thin film under the ring to tighten it up, or use tape to hold it in place once you've got what you wanted. I would NOT squirt any liquids inside to unlubricate it.
