What happens when you use telephoto primes with super 16mm?

Will the lens cover super 16mm? Cooke Telekinic 3" f/4 Anastigmat Taylor/Hobson England is what it says.

I guess the issue of tracking though would not be an issue since it is a prime lens.
Zach... Anyway to test the camera before you go and shoot with it if you have doubts?

Regarding what Kevin said, I think he misspoke, as you can't change focal lengths on the lens you describe - it has a fixed focal length. In any event it's the lens mount that should be re-centered (by 1mm, I think) on a camera modified for Super 16. If your lens mount hasn't been recentered, you'll just have to try your lens to see if the coverage is adequate (if it isn't, you'll see a problem in the corners of one side of the frame).
You can avoid problems by using a lens designed for 35mm still photography, which will provide such a large image circle that the off-center lens won't be an issue. You can mount this to your K100 using C-mount adapter. However, the larger lens will probably interfere with the K100's finder objectives. Hope this helps.
