As for groundglass, a Super-16 camera should have a Super-16 groundglass -- the only issue is whether you need additional framelines other than Full Aperture, which is about 1.68 : 1. You may want 16x9 (1.78 : 1) framelines or 1.85 theatrical framelines, but the truth is that in a pinch, you can shoot with a 1.68 Full Aperture frameline and just frame consistently with a little more excess headroom and be fine with the cropping to 1.78 or 1.85.

in general i like to stay on the side of the longer lenses when shooting 16mm to achieve shallower depth of field to combat 16mm's increased depth compared to 35mm, but the Canon 8-64 is a nice versatile lens.

The 8-64 and its successor the 7-63 are sharper than the 11.5-138 and its successor the 11.5-165. Less zoom range means less stress on the optics to achieve a great image. The longer zooms are very good, just not quite as good. They also breath more.
