Do Arri Schneider-Kreuznach's fit on an Arriflex 16BL

Just wanted to see if anyone has any expericne with the Arri Schneider-Kreuznach's (Arri-Standard, originally for Arriflex 16S) fitting on an Arriflex 16BL (Bayonet Mount). I know I've read that Arri-Standard's usually fit on the Bayonet, but wanted to check in about these specific lenses. Thank you. Here are the lenses in question. https://www.sharegrid.com/newyork/l/2926-arri-schneider-kreuznach-16mm-set-covers-bmpcc-10-25-50-75

The Ari Schneider-Kreuznach lenses will fit the Arriflex 16BL but you will not be able to use the lens blimp, which means the camera will run louder. There was a lens blimp for the small primes, but they are very hard to find these days.

The 16BL manual specifically lists which lenses will work with it, the Schneider Cinegon and Cine-Xenons are included:


Even if you found a Universal Lens Blimp for them, each lens needed their own matched scale rings and coupling ring, so yeah, blimping primes for a 16BL is not an easy option these days.
