does anyone know if the 15-150mm angenieux zoom (type 10x15 B) is made for Bolex RX?
Since it came with my bolex...
Is it any good?

I wanted to answer b/c I was in your position last year, asking about the lens-

When I sent it in for a checkup, Visual Products told me that my particular lens was as sharp as the older Cooke Zoom for Super 16mm. I used it with an Eclair ACL2, and I had it converted to an Arri Bayonet mount; I don't believe mine was made for Bolex RX. I've heard that quality differs from lens to lens with this model, so it might be worthwhile to have yours checked and collimated. I highly recommend Visual Products.

I used this lens for my first feature film, and I plan on using this lens and camera for my next one, despite more available funds.
