So at 24 fps your exposure would be around 1/51 sec with the half moon compared to 1/55 or 1/60 with the bow tie.
The biggest concern is probably that the bow tie design was notorious for smearing highlights under certain lighting conditions.

I just wanted to assure you that I´ve been using a CP16R with the bowtie shutter for several years now and have yet to come across the dreaded smearing effect.
I guess one thing to do would be to shoot all sorts of subjects with tricky highlights and see if you can 'provoke' the smearing to happen, then you´d know under what circumstances to watch out for it.
Dom, can you shed some light (no pun intended) as to under what conditions the bowtie shutter would smear highlights?

I just got a CP-16r! I have no lens, but I have a bow tie shutter, if I may ask some questions to my fellow cp-16 users,
(a) what lenses are y'all using? Primes or Zooms? Which types. I am dying to know
( How worried are you on a scale of 1-10 about the chip malfunctioning on you, i read that the a common mod on these is to change the chip, to a more friendly, more 21st century chip... so it doesn't melt your board, like these old chips which have been in the camera since it was manufactured in years of past..
© May I see any footage anyone has shot with a cp-16r.
Threading! If anyone is willing to share an experience with threading a cp-16. I have a mitchell type 400ft magazine. Is it easy to thread these for 100ft loads or just as complex as the 400ft mags..
