Telear-H 3.5/200 Review

Telear-H 3.5/200

Telear-H 3.5/200 is a fast telephoto lens (Russian name “Телеар-Н 3.5/200”). Made in USSR. Produced in the Kyiv factory “Arsenal” from 1985. Letter “H” means that the lens is compatible with the Nikon F Ai mount.

Some copies came with an M42 screw mount; it needs to be established instead of the Nikon F bayonet screw.

Telear-H 3.5/200 Handling and Mechanics

The lens is well assembled and sits perfectly on the camera. It has a good long-diameter-weight combination. It also has a built-in hood.

The focusing ring rotates 270 degrees, allowing you to focus well. But this does not prevent slips on the aperture f/ 3.5. Personally, I found it difficult to get into focus due to the narrow depth of field.

All samples were taken on Nikon D3100 Camera. RAW export without post-processing.


Telear-H 3.5/200 Sharpness

A wide-open picture is soft for portraits. Good sharpness appears from aperture f / 8.

Telear-H 3.5/200 Character and Bokeh

The large aperture well blurs the background. But bokeh is nothing special.

Telear-H 3.5/200 Contrast and Color Rendering

The lens is multi-coated, but like all Soviet lenses, afraid of the backlight. And even a built-in hood does not help.

In general, if the shot does not let the backlit and sidelight, have pleasant colors. But skin tones require adjustment.


Personal Experience
This is my first manual telephoto lens. Therefore, due to lack of experience, it wasn't easy to use. I did not stay long. Soon after I sold it and pictures from it have not much.
