Question about Vivitar 70-210mm f/2.8-4 for Nikon AFD
I have the first of the Vivitar series 1 lens (70 X 210 F3.5) and the zoom part/macro focus movement of the lens needs lube to move smoothly. Where can I get it services?

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

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.
