Question about Vivitar 80-200 F/4 Macro Focusing Zoom Lens For Minolta Film Cameras Free Film
Adapter for olympus e-p3 M4/3 CAMERA
SOURCE: vivitar 75-300mm lens
The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.
KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.

it depends what mount your vivitar lenses have - you can easily search ebay for mount adaptors that will allow you to use most older lenses on the 4/3 body, but you will only be able to use manual focus and need to work in aperature priority or fully manual mode. A generic adaptor for a OM, Nikon, Pentax or Contax mount should cost around $20. you should read up on them as there are some differences with how they are made and function, but basically are just mechanical coupling devices that fit the lense to the camera. remember, you lose all automatic features

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.
