You don't need the serial number, you need the model number. Look for numbers inscribed on the ring around the lens opening or on the body of the lens somewhere.

Is there a vivitar/minolta lens adapter for nikon body?


Hi,

Yes - there are such adapters.

Most of the time however, you lose one or more functions like you do when using extension tubes. These can be metering, auto focus, aperture control on the camera body (must be done on the lens barrel instead), etc.

If you have nice Minolta / Vivitar glass, it would probably worth learning to use the camera in a manual mode with these inexpensive adapters.

Good luck!

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 have a vivitar 62mm camera lens, is there any value to this lens? It was used on a Cannon AE-1 35mm camera.


That is one peculiar focal length- in fact, I think you have given us the filter thread size (62mm diameter fitting filter). So I can't comment on the lens as I am not sure what it is.

There are some Canon digital cameras that can take the lenses from the old SLR film camera range, so if this is an interesting lens, like a zoom or telephoto, it might be worth something. Most film camera stuff now is unwanted, unless it is collectable. A Vivitar lens with a Canon mount is not collectable. These were less expensive third party lenses, not the top whack Canon made ones.

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.

Older Vivitar 28mm Lens on New Nikon D50 Digital Camera


Bob, there are several reasons why this won't work, mainly cost

An older manual focus wide angle will work in the manual mode on a D50. The can be had very cheap on eBay and the like.

Converting one that has a Canon FD mount to a Nikon is possible, but you would need one with a Nikon mount for parts. The focal plane distances are different between Nikon and Canon. An adapter for this is not possible without adding optics to compensate

Old Lense and new camera


Here is a link to the lens limitations of the D40, same for the D40X:

The camera will not recognize the lens but you can take pictures setting speed and aperture manually. Since you see results after you take the picture, you can make adjustments to correct your exposure

Vivitar lens


Can you provide model on the Vivitar and the model of the Rebel? The serial number provided is not sufficient to find exact info on the lens mount. If you take a picture of the lens mount and upload it, it's better.

Best info I can give is this ...

The Canon Rebel is an EF mount and will accept also EF-S type lenses. Once you have the mount type of the lens, you can then locate a mount adapter that will allow you to attach it to the Canon.

For example. If the VIVITAR lens has a T-Mount, then you can get one here. Realize though that old lenses do not benefit from new camera features, so autofocus and other things may not work.

Let me know more info if you can ...

Hope this helps, if so, rate a FixYa! ThankYa!
