Hello,
I recently purchased a set of Switar primes from a dealer in Ca. I specifically asked if these were RX lenses as I have a Bolex Reflex 1 camera. I was told yes and when recieved them noted that none of the lenses had the "RX" designation on the lense. I was told that they had their back focus adjusted so they would work properly with the rex camera.
The focul lengths purchased were 10,25, and 75.
I paid pretty much retail for these.
I have heard positive comments about the seller. He repairs lenses, and modifies cameras for S-16.

The question(s): Is this a viable way to make a non-rx lense work with a reflex system and will I take a hit when I go to sell these after the project is complete i.e. is it good enough to tell somebody that they had the back focus adjusted and should work properly.
I have read +/- about adjusting lenses. I just don't know how it all comes out in the real world of shooting.
I appreciate your replies, Thankyou.
