Renting a 9.5, 12, 16 and 25mm should cover your needs.

Just be aware that with the 6.5 everything on frame is going to be on focus, good if that's what you are looking for.
Oh my yes. The hyperfocal distance for that lens is around a meter and a half at a T2.

If you get the suggestions David gave, you would be pretty set. Personally, I would try to add a 6mm to the list. I'm a big fan of that lens' perspective on 16mm, especially outdoors.
Personally, I really dislike lenses this wide on 16mm. I don't think that the format has enough resolution to cope.
If you do use one, make sure you shoot at a good deep stop. t5.6 at least.
