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.

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 an auto focus Vivitar Series 1 100-400mm work on a nikon d80


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.

Is the Vivitar Series 1 compatible with the D200 Nikon Digital SLR camera?


Yes. Bear in mind that due to the sensor of the D200 being smaller than a frame of 35mm film, the crop factor will make this lens seem like a 150-600mm.

300mm lens #37614970 what camera does it fit on.


K/AR is a konica mount (not to be confused with Pentax K mounts) - see article
http://photo.net/sony-minolta-slr-system-forum/00UmBi

Usually on Vivitar lenses the last 5mm of mount can be changed / interchanged. What you probably have is the univeral lens, with a Konica K/AR mount.

Older lenses in new digital cameras


The camera and lenses you mention are non-autofocus equipment and have a different mount than newer ones. Your best choice for reliability, price, and ease of service would be one of the Canon EOS digital SLRs. Second choice would be Nikon D series. Minolta autofocus lenses used on the older Maxxum series film cameras can be used on the new Sony digitals, but Sony is new to digital SLRs and their track record remains to be seen.

How do I know what size lenses to look for?


Hi rlopez117,

Congratulations on the aquisition of such a great vintage camera!

Pentax cameras use a mount known as M42. This means it is a 42 millimeter diamater. You may also find this referred to as the Pentax mount, as Pentax (Asahi Optical) made this popular in the United States. With any camera, any lens you purchase should match the mount of the camera in order to be used together.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Compatibility of vivitar lens with Minolta x370


Minolta X 370 is not an auto focus camera so provided you are willing to use the Vivitar lens in manual AND provided the lens has minolta mount , you will be able to use it.
