I'm looking to get a few primes for my 16mm and I'm trying to figure out which sizes would work best. I've already picked up a 25mm, but I'm not sure which other lenses I should get. I can see getting a 50mm, but I'm not sure if I need both a 9mm or a 12.5mm , or both?

Any suggestions?

Buy all three if you can afford it. The 9.5mm is very handy in tight spaces.

The Zeiss 16mm primes consisted of a 9.5, 12, 16, and 25. That would be the ideal set.

For my Arriflex 16S/B, I've got an 8, 12.5, 17.5, 25 and 50, and that really seems to cover it all for me.
