Is there any c-mount wide angle or even fish eye lens for my Beaulieu 4008?
Is there a new one or should i look to some old/used ones and out of production??

Used, try ebay. Quite a few wide and fisheyes coming up all the time. ones to look for are those from

not sure if those ebay links will work but you can search them out, and probably find other examples, too.

There are many others in the 6mm and below range. Also you can pick up new lenses from Schneider to Fujinon among others at online retailers like this:

I see most people who want a fisheye effect -- because it has limited applications -- just using a lens adapter that they can screw on the front of their zoom. However, a good wide angle prime lens (5 to 6mm) is a pretty worthwhile investment, in my opinion, because you'll find yourself using it quite a bit if you're shooting any typical super 8 handheld style dramatic filmmaking.
