I have a chance to buy this lens Sony 12.5-75mm its a C-mount. Will this lens fit on my Bolex H16 Rex1 without the use of a adapter? and if yes will I have any focusing issues?

 

Thanks 

John

If the lens is silver you may find it was made by Tamron. Years ago, I used a version of the Sony/Tamron lens from an old 1/2" reel to reel EIAJ camera and recorder system on a Bolex H16, then later on a Bolex H16RX5 for stringer news work. It was adequate but not outstanding for sharpness.

This vision was shot with the lens. Unfortunately the transfer from film to digital vision is very poor but it may give you a hint if you compare the sharpness of the image with the blemishs and scratches on the film itself.
