Some quick and initial tests with my new system: 5D III (ML RAW) - Bolex 16/32/1.5x - Rectilux Hardcore DNA      

Did a quick and dirty lens test for illustrational purposes.  An interesting thing a fellow Bolex-Ana owner discovered is the slight green-cast. Something that is also visible in this test.

This was yesterday evening in our recreational area 'Het Twiske'. Colour of the sun was extremely due to sand out of the sahara. My favourite setup Fuji X-T3 + Voigtlander Ultron 40/2 + Bolex Moller 1

Hi Guys, I have a question, hope you guys can help:

 Can we dual focusing on Zeiss contax with Bolex 16/32/1.5x?

Thank you!

I shot an entire video duel focusing with the Bolex 16/32. It's not that bad once you get the hang. I was blind by the end of the day. Vision totally blurred. I use a ProtoDNA variable diopter now with a 40mm on GH5. I would recommend getting a single focus solution because of where and tear on the Bolex.

I think i may have just joined the club. purchased this today in 16mm.  I am informed it has fungus, so ill probably be pulling it apart to give it a clean. If anyone has any advice on either cleaning it or the unit itself i'd be happy to hear it the only thing i'm not sure about is if this is a projector lens and maybe this thread is talking about bolex anamorphic camera lens ?

Edit : afer rereading the first few pages i realize i bought the projector lens i think  please disregard ?

@keessie65 there I was contemplating selling my beloved Bolex 16/32/1.5x last night, chanced upon this thread, started having another play with my GX8 and 20/1.7 and now resolute I’m going to use it more and about to pull the trigger on the single focus add on 😃

I love how compact this thing is on the GX8 with pancake.

Also figured out how to get this to work in stills mode by using the Penny EXTC mode in Medium at 8MP, which gives an extra 1.3x crop on the already 2x crop.

Took a quick snap before. Works on my Voigtlander 25/0.95 too 😍

Love this anamorphic. Think they may need to bury me with it.

Cheers for the inspiration pal 🙂

You did the best.

It's the best 1.5x lens, edge to edge sharp. Enjoy shooting and keep us informed with nice posts.
