Hello, below is a link to a lens. It's d mount, not c, which is what my bolex 16mm reflex is. My questions are, what adapter would I need, and would the lens even work?

I think D-mount is for 8mm not 16mm. So it probably wouldn't cover the whole frame. Also, the price is a bit low for a 16mm Switar, they usually go for more than that.

If you read the ebay item description, it plainly says it's for a Bolex 8mm camera.
