Bolex H16 EBM Electric S16mm Prism Light Loss

Does the Bolex H16 EBM Electric (converted to super 16) still have a light loss from the prism requiring you to open the lens 1/3 of a stop for compensation. I know the shutter is 170 as compared to older models and wondering if the viewing system changed in this model.

Playing around with it over the weekend, filter package I have is ND2, 4, 8 if I recall open up 1 stop for ND2, 2 stops for ND4, 3 stops for ND8.
