I am working with a camera that has a 16mm x 12mm CMOS chip; this is bigger than a typical 2/3" sensor and smaller than 35mm film image area (~24mm x 18mm). Can someone recommend an appropriate lens to use with this type of a camera?

Well, you'll ahve to cover the format so probably 35mm format lenses are going to be the right tool. What lens mount are you working with?

It has an F-mount... I can get them to build me a custom PL mount. Do you think the Zeiss F mount photo lenses have the same optics / quality as other PL mount lenses?

They should, more or less. They'll be a pain to pull focus with, though. Most photo lenses only have 1/4-1/2 of a rotation for the entire focus range.

A 1" sensor would be 9x12mm with a 16mm diagonal.

12x16mm sensor would be a 1.25" tube, which used to be a common broadcast format.
Usually had plumbicon tubes.

I am using a custom built chip/camera; actually it is not a full 1inch chip (close to 1inch).

Below are the specs:
Array Format: 2,400H x 1,800V
Sensor Imaging Area (approximately): 16mm H x 12mm V -Diagonal 20mm
