it looks like it has a standard arri mount, so should fit standard and even the bayonet mount, although i dont think its in very good shape.

Good Luck

The one thing you need to be aware of, or concerned about, with that lens is that you may have an issue with the lens blimp on your Arriflex 16BL. I don't know if there is a prime lens blimp that will handle a 9mm lens without vignetting. Also, as was previously mentioned, it looks to be in really bad shape. And there is no indication about what shape the glass is in, but if it is anything like the housing, it's a mess.

I bought it, I bought it! Hee, hee... $54.00. The gentleman was good enough to send me some pics of the elements -- all clean! I'll let you know what I think of it when I receive it.

Stephen, Martin and Tim: thank you for your input and advice. It was very much appreciated. With all the professionals, semi-pros and learned ameteurs, this forum is just an excellent tool for guys like me slogging through all the stuff I should have learned twenty years ago... :D
