Question about Cameras
I HAVE A VIVITAR LENS THAT WENT TO ONE OF DAD'S CAMERA'S WHICH ARE ALL GONE NOW. i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF A LENS THIS ACTUALLY IS AND WHAT CAMERAS IT WILL FIT. WOULD IT WORK ON ANY OF THE NEW DIGITAL SLR CAMERAS?
SUBJECT LINE: THAT IS WHAT IS N THE LENS INSIDE FRONT VIEW. iT HAS A SLIDE SWITCH AT THE END THAT ATTACHES TO THE CAMERA WHICH IN ONE POSITION SHOWS THE LETTER M AND IN THE OTHER POSITION SHOWS THE LETTER A. LENS IS MADE IN JAPAN...
IT ADJUSTS IN AND OUT LIKE A TELEPHOTO LENS AND HAS A ROW OF NUMBERS ON THE FIRST BAND THAT MOVES CLOSEST TO WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE BODY OF THE CAMERA--THOSE NUMBERS ARE - 22 -16 - 11 - 8 - 5.6 - 4 - 2.8
THE NEXT BAND TURNS AND ROTATES THE LENS IN AND OUT AND HAS THE NUMBERS 16 8 - 4 - A RED LINE AND THEN THE NUMBERS 4 - 8 - 16 ALL OFTHIS IS ON THE SILVER BAND THEY CAN BE LINED UP WITH THE NUMBERS ON THE BLACK BODY OF THE LENS WHICH ARE IN RED 1.5 -1.7 - 2 - 2.5 - 4 - 5 - 7 - 10 - 15 - 30 THESE ARE IN METERS THE WHITE NUMBERS BELOW ARE IN FEET AND THEY ARE 5 - 5.5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 15 - 20 - 30 - 50 - 100 - OO
THE LENS IS IN OR APPEARS TO BE IN EXCELLENT WORKING CONDITION AND HAS NO SCRATCHES OR CLOUDINESS LOOK TO IT.
Take the lens to a good camera shop and ask them what the mount is. They will be able to tell you what, if any, modern cameras it will fit on.
