For a Bolex RX I would make my first priority a 10mm Switar. (Nobody else made 10mm in an RX version AFAIK, but the Switars are the best anyway IMHO.) Make sure it's an RX version, not a standard C-Mount version.

Schneider made a set of lenses for the bolex I believe. Including a
10mm (but a T2), Worked fine wide open on my Reflex bolex.
