I am in search of a wide angle lens that would match with Zeiss 10-100 T2 MKll zoom.

Zeiss 8mm Distagon T* T2.2 lens. Used to use one with a Zeiss 10-100 T2 Mk1 lens and it matched fairly well.

Footage shot with Zeiss 8mm Distagon Wide Open

Same scene shot with Zeiss 10-100 T2 Mk1 Wide Open zoomed out to 10mm

Best,

Tim, I am thinking more like close to a fisheye lens. Have you tried this lenses?
Thanks for your quick reply.

Ray,

No, I have not used either of those so I can't really give you an opinion. Hopefully others here have.

Best,

I haven't actually used the Century 5.7mm, but I'm pretty sure it's a fish eye.
I had an old century catalog which had clips of 16mm film shot with their wide angles.

The Angenieux 5.9mm and the Kinoptik 5.7mm are both rectilinear.

But wouldn't a rectilinear be a better match for the zoom than a fish eye, which is curvilinear?

Can you explain to me the a difference between rectilinear and a fish eye lens.

A rectilinear lens renders straight lines as straight lines, while a fish eye AKA curvilinear lens renders straight lines as curved.

Most photographic lenses are rectilinear and considered distortion free,
while the fish eye has extreme barrel distortion.
