Nikon to PK conversion

I bought a used Nikon F mount Vivitar 20mm 1:3.8 lens by accident. I was trying to buy a Pentax K mount lens. The flanges are almost the same and the registry distances are very close. Can the lens be easily converted from Nikon to Pentax K?

How to get vivitar pro 548 series 1 to work on nikon d90


The TTL contacts on the Nikon are different to the Vivitar.
You can put a remote flash trigger in the Vivitar and use the Nikon's built-in flash to trigger the Vivitar flash using the remote flash trigger.

Does anyone knows how a Vivitar 75-260mm lens will works on nikon d3000?


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens in question has a Nikon mount then it will fit perfectly well on a D3000. If the lens has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not fit at all.The lens is a manual focus lens, so autofocus will not work. You'll have to focus by yourself.The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You will have to shoot in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter.

Vivitar screw mount lens, Nikon D-80 camera. Is there an adapter for this?


The M42 mount was used by several camera manufacturers, most notably Pentax. Nikon is not one of them.
Vivitar made many lenses with a T-mount. This consists of a screw mount on the lens and a suitable adapter, depending on the camera body. This allows a lens to be used with different cameras simply by changing the adapter.
If your lenses are T-mount, then yes, there are adapters available. One source is here.
Be aware that you'll probably lose any metering capability when using any lens with this adapter. You'll have to use a separate light meter or else view the resulting picture on the display and adjust the exposure appropriately.

I own a Tamron SP 80-210 adaptall II len with Pentax mount. I currently own a Nikon 7000. Can I use the Tamron with the Nikon by adding a adaptor? Any suggested adaptor I should be using? Thanks


Hi, The focal distance on Pentax camera's is different then the focal distance on Nikon's so because of that Pentax lens' can't be adapted to work on a Nikon camera. I'd suggest finding a similar lens with a Nikon mount as cross brand mounting is quite difficult.

Are there any Vivitar digital cameras that will accept a vivitar 70-210 lens from a 35mm camera?


No. Vivitar currently does not make any digital cameras with interchangeable lenses. They do make a film camera with interchangeable lenses:

Depending on the mount on the lens, it may fit a number of digital cameras from another manufacturer. For example, if the lens has a Nikon mount then it will fit onto every Nikon digital SLR model, though perhaps not all features will work with every model.

I have a pentax slr film camera and i want to know ii the lens will work on a Nikon dlsr digital camera


No. Nikon has been using the same lens mount since about 1959. Pentax has changed their mount once since then, but not to the same thing.

Canon on nikon


The Canon lenses are FD mount which means that you will need to get an adaptor to convert the FD mount to fit the F mount on the Nikon. An example of the mount can be seen here:

As for the speedlights the hotshoe mount will accept them on your Nikon, put them on with fresh batteries and try them out.

Simga makes lenses to fit several different makes of camera bodies including Canon and Nikon. I'm assuming your Sigma lens has a Nikon mount, if so there are some adapters, but they may not work like you want - not all functions may work properly thru the adapter. For best results you should return or sell the lens and get one with the Canon mount.
