You should be able to take this to a local technician/camera repair shop and get the mount replaced. This is something you need to let the pros do simply because of the electronics and percision that goes into modern lenses. BTW, that's an awesome lens!

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.

Toyo 500mm lens to nikon d90 mount


At the risk of being obvious, you need a Nikon mount.

The lens comes with a T-mount. This is a "universal" mount with adapters for almost any camera mount, including the Nikon F mount. If the lens doesn't come with one, get a Nikon T-mount adapter.

The lens doesn't have any electronics, so you'll be shooting completely manual. No autofocus, no autoexposure, not even any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

When iput my car in gear i can fell the motor raise up with a thump noise also fan belt makes a winning sound


The Motor raising up issue is, you may have a worn or broken Engine or Transmission Mount, inspect the mounts by having someone or you, look at the mounts while someone else puts the car in gear. If you see the mounts move excessively, than the mounts need to be replaced. The whining or squealing Fan Belt may be a worn, glazed or loose belt. I would inspect the belt and tighten or replace as needed.

I have an old Minolta 5000Af with a quantaray 70-300 af lens on it. Is there anything to make this compatible with the new nikon d90?


In a word, no. If the Quantaray lens fits on the Minolta, then it has a Minolta mount. A lens requires a Nikon mount to fit on a Nikon D90. The two mounts are not interchangeable.

Now, if it was an ancient Quataray manual-focus lens with a T-mount adapter, then all you would need is a Nikon T-mount adapter to replace the Minolta T-mount adapter...

Have multiple Minolta X-700 bodies, the 400mm Minolta MD lens, does lock onto one body but not some of the other camera bodies. Any idea why?


If your other lenses lock on to all of the bodies, then it is quite likely that the notch on the mount edge of the 400mm is worn. The notch is located about 90 degrees clockwise from the red marker dot on the lens barrel. I doubt if there are new replacement mounts for that lens. You may be able to square up the edges of the notch with a small file.

I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left


If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.

Canon D5, when I point it down wards, it get the wronge exposure ie 200 at f22 also the flash will not work when camera is pointed down, but all OK when held level?


Sounds like the lens is losing connection with the camera body. Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the mount and lens with a little alcohol on a Q-tip and make sure the spring loaded contact pins move and do not stick. Look at the lens mounting ring on the body and make sure it is not excessively worn (deep scratches, chrome worn thru to brass color). Re-attach the lens and grab the body with one hand and the lens the other and with a little force twist and wiggle them back and forth and against each other. The lens will have a tiny amount of slack between it and the mount, but the lens mount should not move in the body. If it does than the camera has probably been dropped and broken it loose.
If cleaning the contacts does not help then it will probably need to go to Canon for service. You can also carry it into any camera store or show it to any pro and they should be able to tell you if it has a real problem or not in about 20 seconds. If it needs repair work, send it straight to Canon. That way if they screw it up, they can replace it. It happens more than you think.

My Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55 3.5-5.6G ED has a broken mount ring. Can I get a replacment mount? if so, from where?


You can get the part directly from Nikon, and the repair is fairly simple. Look at the step-by-step of the same repair done on this page:

The part # and Nikon contact info is listed there as well.

Lens mount plastic is broken on Lens


Unfortunately your lens is one of the kit versions which were built as cheaply as possible with a plastic lens mount. They were never intended to be repaired, but to be fair they usually seem to last quite well on the 18-55mm versions but the 18-105mm is heavier and longer and I've found that the plastic mount is particularly intolerant to any handling errors on this lens.

A professional repair will normally cost more than the lens is worth, but you can sometimes buy new replacement mounts.

Use your favourite search engine to look for part number 1C999-488. Unfortunately they're rarely in stock whenever I've needed one. You may also want to search for a scrap lens with a good mount which you can replace yours with, but scrap lenses of the correct type usually have faulty or badly worn plastic mounts as well.

Carefully assess your lens before making the repair: unless it's in perfect working order in all respects except for the broken mount then you'll be better off buying a new or used complete replacement lens.
