I might be working with Vistavision soon for VFX plates. I was wondering if anyone knew what lenses are available for the format?

Ask the rental house you're getting the camera from. Originally, they used Leica lenses, but that was 50+ years ago. The image is the same size as 35mm SLR still cameras, so all that huge collection of glass would work, with appropriate adapters. Paramount closed their camera department recently, that was the VV place here in LA. I don't know what became of the equipment.

Rental houses will probably have their own unique cobbled together sets for those cameras. I suspect that most everything that covers is probably either very old and original to the format or is rehoused from a full frame 35mm still camera lens.
