I haven't used the lens, but if it wasn't designed for S16mm, and I'm 99% sure the Varios are earlier lenses, then I'd not count on S16mm coverage at any of the wider focal lengths, something like over the 16mm side I would tend to think would vignette. The only way to be 100% sure of your lens/camera (as who knows, you may have a slightly abnormal gate/viewing system) would be to roll a few feet with the lens through it's range and get it developed. At least that's my suggestion.
It also seems that lens was pared with the 16BL which wasn't a Super-6 camera. . .so again, I'd be wary.
