I have a Kern-Paillard 25mm RX Lens for my H16 Bolex – Is the focus ring supposed to slide back and forth?

Hi there!

I have a Kern-Paillard RX Lens for the Bolex H16 Reflex, and I am wondering about the focus ring: is it supposed to slide back and forth (towards the rim and then back towards the base) when you adjust focus? Or is it supposed to remain fixed in one position? The one I have now DOES NOT slide back and forth as I adjust the focus ring.

I am completely new to this – this is my first RX lens so I’m always learning 🙂

No, it isn’t.
