Hi all!
I have just bought a bolex H16 reflex, and I was thinking to use my SM m39 leica lens (35-50-90-135) with c mount adapter as first bolex lens
Is it possible and fine?
Thx Mauro

You should be fine as long as they are not super fast lenses like f/1.2.
At these apertures, quality would be affected.

Cheers,

You can also get an M39 to M42 adapter (just a small threaded ring, possibly included in M39 to EOS adapters), and use it with M42 to C-mount adapter which are easier to find
