I found a super cheap switar lens on eBay. It's a 16mm lens. Below is a link. My question is.... Would this be relatively a "normal" lens for a bolex? I would rather get a ten mm, but don't want to pay 200.00+ for one.

If your Bolex is a Reflex, you should look for lenses marked H16RX.

It's a bit on the long side.

But for anything near that money I'd live with it. It's quite usable till something wider comes along.
