S16 lens like zeiss t1.3 is enought for the format.
to blow up the film with success take care about exposure and use the finest sensibility film stock you can!

you will not have any problems using ultra primes shooting on s16 for 35mm blow up, because they have a very good resolution. but you will still have the s16mm deph of field because of the circle of confusion (0,0125mm).
have a good shoot.

I still haven't gotten a straight, qualified answer as to whether a 16mm lens is sharper than a 35mm lens. (I'm not talking about focal lengths here). I'm thinking no.
The statement keeps coming up "it has to be sharper for the smaller frame size", (or the reverse-that 35mm doesn't need to be as sharp), but that assumes that "THE END RESULT IS THE SAME IMAGE QUALITY", which of course, it's not going to be no matter what.
