If the lens has an "A" setting, be sure that's where you have it set. Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts to fit different brands of cameras. If the lens has a Nikon mount then it will work on the D3200. If it has some other mount then it will not work.

In all modes cannot get to Focus - screen just reads F--


Check that the auto/manual focus switch (on the lower right of the lens mount as you look into the lens) is not on manual focus. If so, move it to automatic.

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.

Vivitar lens to Pentax K-x camera adapter.


It depends which camera they were originally designed for use upon. If they are M42 lenses, then yes, but without any automatic facilities whatsoever - if not, then it is unlikely.

Lens adapter


No. Unless the lens has a generic T-mount with a Minolta adapter. In that case you can replace the T-mount with a Pentax adapter.

How do I know what size lenses to look for?


Hi rlopez117,

Congratulations on the aquisition of such a great vintage camera!

Pentax cameras use a mount known as M42. This means it is a 42 millimeter diamater. You may also find this referred to as the Pentax mount, as Pentax (Asahi Optical) made this popular in the United States. With any camera, any lens you purchase should match the mount of the camera in order to be used together.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
