quick question-

does the angenieux 6.5mm retrofocus
work on 16mm or is it a 8mm lens...
any possibility that it might work for super16?

thanks!

I believe that that lens was designed for Regular 8 or "Double 8" cameras that had interchangeable D mount lenses. D mount has smaller diameter threads at 0.625 inch vs. C mount at 1.000 inch. You would have to make D to C mount adaptor ring, or would that be a C to D mount step down adaptor? The flange distance is shorter for D mount lenses at 0.484 inch vs. 0.690 inch for C mount lenses, so that would also be a problem for mounting on a C mount camera.

I doubt the lens would cover a standard 16mm frame completely.

You want to find the angenieux 5.9mm lens which was made for 16mm and costs more than the 6.5mm lens. I know there is a angenieux 6.5mm on eBay now, but they have it listed as a C mount. Ask them to measure the thread diameter for you before you bid on it.

yes-
they wrongly listed it as c mount and as being for h16 cameras.
I've informed them of the misprint.
thanks for the info.
