Bolex Leica M lenses

LEICA-Bolex adapters were offered by Paillard already in the 1930s. Paillard & Cie were close with Leitz for an unknown reason. The H camera prototype was equipped with a VIDOM finder and the top thread in the main frame that accepts the screw-in focusing magnifier is German.

I assume that Leitz became interested in the Swiss enterprise when Zeiss-Ikon presented the Movikon 16 in 1932. Leitz was preparing a 16-mm. camera himself, had already a lens line, but then was overrun. Paillard halted their H camera project, too, from 1931 to 1934.
