Could anybody recommend an affordable 10mm wide lens for a Bolex H16, bayonet attachment?  My current lens is unusable in cramped interior scenes.  Id be looking around the £200 ($330) mark..

As far as I know bayonet mount lenses for Bolexes were only ever zooms, if you want to use primes with a bayonet mount Bolex you need a bayonet to C-mount adapter:

then you can use C mounts like 10mm Switar RX or 10mm Schneider RX or (stopped down a bit) non-RX lenses like 10mm Angenieux etc.

Yup, Dom is spot on with this (and yes non 'RX' lenses will need to be stopped down to at least f5.6/8 for optimum results)
