Has anyone tried using the Bolex Aspheron 5.5mm attachment made for the Kern-Paillard 10mm Switar H16 RX lens on the Kern-Paillard 5.5mm Switar H8 RX lens? I believe both lenses have a 32.0mm attachment size, so the Aspheron should fit physically. I'm wondering if it would work optically.
Hi,I have already ordered switar 10mm f1.6 and planing ro buy BOLEX Aspheron 5.5mm, so I will upload video or send picture if still interested in.

I would imagine that if it worked perfectly on the H8 RX 5.5mm as well, Bolex would have advertised the fact. So chances are it either won't work at all or you'll get some nasty edge fall off.
I have access to an Aspheron attachment but not an H8 RX 5.5mm, otherwise I'd give it a go!

. . . I don't think it will work.
I've found the Aspheron 5.5mm lens has a larger diameter thread (probably 38mm) than that of the front of the Kern-Paillard 5.5mm f/1.6 Switar H8 RX lens, so you're correct. It won't work.

No idea of the focal length/f-stops but it cut in ok with other footage.
