Additionally: Even if your Vivitar lens does not have a Minolta lens mount, you can get an inexpensive adaptor to be able to mount the lens on your Minolta camera. At least you used to be able to buy these adaptors before the World went digital crazy. I still think the adaptors are available. Check with any large camera store, like B&H in New York. Also manual focus lenses for older SLR's (Single Lens Reflex) film cameras are available at reasonable prices. I have the same Minolta X370 camera (along with few others) and lenses for it. So you can get a lens that has a Minolta mount for your camera, this might be the easist way to go and you can sell your Auto focus lens (since the Auto focus will not work with the Minolta X370 camera). Hope this helps you. Thanks, AJ.

Minolta X 370 is not an auto focus camera so provided you are willing to use the Vivitar lens in manual AND provided the lens has minolta mount , you will be able to use it.

X370

There are adapters available to fit the old Minolta manual-focus lenses on Sony alpha-series dSLRs as well as Sony NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The lenses obviously will not autofocus and, depending on the lens and camera body, you may lose some or all exposure metering capability.

My 100-400 lens sounds like gears are stripped hear gears grinding when camera trying to auto focus - is there someplace to repaired and is it worth repairing

You have a no-name branded and almost worthless lens which will have absolutely no after-sales support any more.

Repairs are therefore not cost effective and probably not possible. Just use the lens in manual focus mode from now on.

Canon Vivitar 75-205MM Macro (compatibility?)

If the Vivitar has an FD mount for older Canons, then no, you'll need an adapter ring to convert the lens. They are available on sites like ebay

Vivitar series 1,70-210mm tele photo.when camera is tilted,lense will move in or out.drives me nuts

It's called "zoom creep" and not all that uncommon. You can try sliding a sheet of paper or a thin film under the ring to tighten it up, or use tape to hold it in place once you've got what you wanted. I would NOT squirt any liquids inside to unlubricate it.

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.

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.

Sorry, the mounts of Minolta manual focus lenses are different than their auto focus series. Sigma, Tokina and Tamron all make compatible zoom lenses to fit the Maxxum series cameras
