The Vivitar 200mm f / 3.5 is an M42 threaded telephoto lens with f / 3,5 aperture. Filter diameter 62 mm, has a built-in hood. The minimum focusing distance is 1.8 meters. The Komine version is considered the highest quality version of all Vivitar telephoto lenses with a focal length of 200 mm.
Sharpness of the photolens quite satisfactory - at least not worse than many analogs released in those years. The drawing is plastic, hips interesting, artistic, in my opinion.
But what surprised me with this lens was that it turned the glare in the out-of-focus area into even circles, like Cook's real triplet! It is no coincidence that, contrary to my custom, I put an illustration with highlights in the blog table of contents - so much Vivitar 200mm f / 3.5 differs in this from other similar telephoto lenses.
In conclusion, I note that the lens is very heavy and suffers from chromatic aberrations when shooting on a bright sunny day. In the pictures below, I've illustrated this with an aggressive crop in the photo.

I would like to express my gratitude for the lens provided to Dmitry Terskov.
