I know there are some Bolex folks on here who know more than I.

I have an H-16 Deluxe (non-reflex). Right now, I have the 25mm and the 75mm (the 16mm is still out there for me to pick up or what ever other lens that might suit my fancy).

But, I have a question -- I had a Bell and Howell 240. It was outfitted with an Angenieux 17-68mm zoom with a reflex viewer. I have taken the lens off that camera and with all the lens removed from the Bolex, I am able to attach this zoom.

Should I be fine using it? What must I be aware of with lenses not specifically built for this Bolex?

THOUGHTS!

THANKS!

ROB!

It will fine beacause only refex Bolexes require the use of RX lenses. You can use any normal c-mount lens.
