Hi.. Has anyone had any experience in Arri/Zeiss 35mm prime lens on Bolex Super16 camera with PL mount adaptor? is that it increases the focal length of the 35mm prime lens?
Any tips would be appreciated!
Thanks a lot!

Hi

They will cover and be just as good above about 25mm. You will find the widest of 16/18mm not wide enough as 16mm sets usually start around 9.5mm, then 12mm.

The focal length will stay the same but the angle of view will get narrower on a 16mm camera.

If you wanna calculate the angle of view, you can use this calculator here.
