SOURCE: 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.

Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.

SOURCE: can my viviter 70-210 f/4 fd mount be mounted on

Hi,
Unfortunately it cannot.
However there are some amazing adapters out there. They start about $10.00 on eBay and go up from there. There is on that sells for about $55 that will connect the Vivitar to the Auto focus confirmation signal in the camera, so that when the lens is focused manually, you hear the camera's signal to confirm focus.
Hope this helps.
Happy New Year,
Mark

Vivitar 35-200 macro FD mount lens for Canon doesn't extend to telephoto. It seems to be stuck at 35mm. Any tips? Disassemble, special buttons, tricks?


Did you try putting the camera and lens in Manual Mode and focusing by hand? On Many cameras there is a tiny switch on the lens that limits your focus ability to either FULL or LIMIT.

I cant seem to get the lens to fous on anything within 3 feet when in macro.. am i doing something wrong?


Actually you are doing really well cause the Tamron specifications for that lens is 1.5m translated into real numbers that's 4.92 feet. If you want some serious macro let me suggest the Canon 100mm F2.5 Macro lens it's not all that bad for price unless you get the IS version then it's out of the park well sort of. Most of my macro work is done on a tripod anyway so the IS is a waist for me.

Here is a review on that lens.

Also is you are using the APS size sensor there is a focal factor of 1.6 so the 100mm lens just grew to 180mm and twice as fast as your Tamron. Cheers

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'd like to purchase a micro lens for my Nikon camera. My question is: Does the Phoenix AF 100mm f/3 5 Macro Telephoto Lens used with Nikon D 90''


If the Phoenix lens is autofocus (AF) in Nikon mount, it will work with the D90. You may find that you want to switch to manual focus when you are using it for macro shots for better control of focus. It will still set exposure properly when set to manual focus.

Vivitar series 1,70-210mm tele photo.when camera is tilted,lense will move in or out.drives me nuts


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.

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.

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.
