    My step father gave me his old Canon A1 with a vivitar Series 1 70-210. It
    seems that the zoom has macro capabilities, but unfortunately I am not able
    to use it. I would appreciate any hints about this function. You can
    understand that I dont want to spend $15 just for that matter.
    Thank you

    It sounds like you have the first edition, with the macro collar on it. Is
    that so? If so, you have to pull the zoom collar back to the 210mm setting,
    then depress the little white button on the collar and turn it
    counter-clockwise. This will engage the macro setting. If you have anymore
    questions, please ask.

    Cool, thanks. I was affraid to force. It only works when the collar is
    pushed hard to the 210mm settings. Thank you a lot!
