I have a Bolex Hi Fi F 1.3 fixed lens. I tried it in my GS1200 and to my surprise it looked very good! It gives a nice sharp picture! And bright! I had this lens stored away for years! This is a great lens. Once I modify it to fit. I might keep it in there! The lens is well made. All metal! And very clean. We will see! Leon Norris.
