Have a Canon G12. Just bought a Vivitar 58mm 3.5 telephoto lens. Do I also need to buy a LA-DC58K conversion lens adapter in order for this to attach?

Totally different lens mounts, you might be able to get an adapter ring, but it wont function amazingly. Honestly, you're better off just selling this lens and buying a Canon 70-300 instead.

SOURCE: I was given a sigma mirror-telephoto lens (600mm)

You need a T-mount ($30) for a Canon on E-bay or a big camera store. There is NO connections to the camera body, so you have to turn off auto focus and go to "Auto" mode (the shutter speed will change) as the lens is fixed at F8. The mirrors give very little depth of field, 4 or 5 feet when far away but everything in back is a blur of circles. At F8 the shutter speed can go slow and at 600mm you may need a tripod.

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.

No. The LA-DC58K only allows you to use the TC-DC58K teleconverter with your camera.

The Tamron 28-200mm lens is intended for use with SLR (single-lens reflex) cameras, not with point&shoot cameras. As far as I know, there aren't any adapters which will allow you to use an SLR lens with the G10.

A teleconverter is an add-on accessory that works with an existing lens. The 28-200 is a lens, which is intended to be used as-is. Using it on the G10 would basically require removing the built-in lens on the G10. As that lens can't be removed...

I purchased a Vivitar 2.2x lens for my Lumix DMC FZ18 camera & I'm getting a lot of distortion. Suggestions?


It's a cheap(ish) generic screw on lens multiplier and so compatibility with anything it's screwed onto is a matter of pot-luck, especially as the conversion factor is so high.

There is nothing you can do, other than to try alternative brands (preferably not exceeding 1.4x) or to obtain the expensive Panasonic version which is designed to be compatible with your camera. Even the official product will produce some distortion (usually barrel distortion) and most likely a fair bit of chromatic aberration. It's just usually less adverse than with the generic products.

How to connect vivitar wide angle lens and telephoto to canon t2i


make sure the vivtar lens is "58mm" diameter (shoutstate this near the fron of the vivtar lens) then it should be a question of screwing the lens on top of the other lens. not the best way of getting wide angle shots as the 18-55 is pretty soft in focusing already and adding another inferior lens will make it look poor. if you don't want to buy a lens i would suggest investing in a tripod and take multiple shots with the 18-55 and stitch them together with a photo editing tool like photoshop

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.

Vivitar telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.
