Modern 35mm primes (Master Primes, Ultra Primes, S4s) were all designed to cover Super 35. As far as I remember Zeiss Superspeeds and Standards cover it too. For even older lenses I'd check with the rental compnay.

Hi,

As long as the lens mount is recentered, most lenses will cover 3 perf or 1.1.85 extraction. The Cooke Ser II lenses will cover, they were designed 60 years ago!

As a side note I just used the old Cooke Speed Panchros (re-housed by Century) from the 60's and they also covered S35 on all focal lenghts.

My old spherical Lomo's also from the 60's did it, too.
