Hi, Giorgio,

just a quick answer: you can use these lenses on the Beaulieu Reflex 16 with(out) problems. Haha!!

RX Kern are corrected for the Paillard-Bolex prism between lens and film that introduces a longitudinal focal error. On a camera with only air between lens and film the lenses will not focus where their scale indicates,

but

since you have a mirror reflex viewfinder with the Beaulieu you will have on film what you see on the ground glass. Only possible problem is that the Beaulieu lens turret will not allow for more than 4 millimetres physical depth beyond collar. Some lens threads are longer, with Kern, with Wollensak, with Schneider.

Thanks for your help Simon.
I will shoot some rolls to see how the RX lenses works on the Beaulieu and I will post here the video of the results.
