Can you please tel me what my vivitor camra lens fits what camras etc it is a vivitor 200mmm 1:3.5 auto telephoto no 28516468 62mm do you know the price these lenses go for many thanks
The lens itself is virtually worthless, possibly £10 at best and even then it needs to be flawless, in perfect working order and to have both front and rear protective caps. Collectors are really only interested in near mint examples of manufacturer's own brand lenses. Most lens buyers are now after lenses which work with digital SLR's and older lenses designed for 35mm film are often less than ideal or completely useless. Modern lenses are usually zoom models and fixed focal length primes like yours are less versatile.
Regarding the mounting, the serial number is no help. Look around the mounting for clues, it might have any of the following:-
N = Nikon
Ca, C, or MD = Canon
CY = Contax Yashica
O or OL = Olympus
M = Minolta
P, PK or P = Pentax
M42 = 42mm screw fit used on old SLR's, also Zenith and Practika
X = Fujica, this is rare so may be worth a little more but there are also very few Fujica owners anyway so may not sell at all.
If there are no clues that you can make sense of then take the camera along to a camera shop, preferably one which sells used 35mm film SLR's and they should be able to identify it for you.
I hope this has helped you, if so please rate my answer.
