I've used a Pentax CCTV 6mm lens on a Super 8 camera successfully but I haven't tried it on a 16mm yet. Usually they say what size sensor the lens will cover so that should tell you whether or not it will cover the whole 16mm frame. These will be a little soft but crazy wide. Also everything past a few feet will be in focus so it's easy to use in situations without much setup time.

2/3" inch lenses cover 16mm. This particular one does not say what sensor size it covers, so it is a risk. I would ask the seller, but they may not know as they didn't post that originally. Worth asking.
