Can anyone advise me on what I should be looking for when purchasing a f 75 mm lens for my Bolex H 16 (non-Reflex)? At the moment I'm looking at a Kern-Paillard f 75 mm 1:2.8 (#891825) for purchase, but I also see a Kern-Paillard f 75 mm 1:2.8 AR (#512669) being offered. Which would be more suitable for a non-Reflex Bolex H 16?

 

Thank You for anyone who can answer this question! Sincerely, Mark J St Hilaire

1:2.8 AR (#512669) is the older one. f 75 mm 1:2.8 (#891825) end fifties, early sixties

They’re technically equal. AR stands for anti-reflection coating, the designation was left out after some time.

Pick the one offered with a cap or both caps, even if more expensive. Tells something about the vendor.
