22801413- 22 means the lens was made by Kiron. 8 is the year- 1978. 01 may mean week 1, according to Vivitar serialization scheme. Week 1 is the first week of that year. But I have two 24-48mm Series 1 lenses, and one is a 227000xx and the other is a 22800xxx, so I'm thinking that on the 24-48mm, the only info is manufacturer (the 22) and year (the digit following the 22), and that the rest are sequential serial numbers for that year's run. So yours is the 1413th 24-48mm lens made by Kiron for Vivitar in 1978. Mine are in Nikon mounts- the 227 is non-AI, while the 228 is AI. I recently took them apart to clean the aperture blades, and the internals from the blades back are completely different designs. Both are built like tanks inside, however.

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.

Thinking of buying a vivitar teleconverter


If the vivitar 2x is not autofocus, then you will obviously give up 90% of the cameras focus, metering and flash functions. All 2x lenses loose 2 stops of light so the f2.8 lens will now be f 8. If that is acceptable then it may be worth the few dollars to get double the power for the lens

Focusing to infinity


Hey redbarnz,
If the lens won't focus to infinity then there is probably something physically wrong with the lens. With the dominance of digital equipment you can find fantastic deals on manual focus 35 mm lenses. I would look at Canon manual focus lenses rather than sticking with vivitar. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
