I understand they'll vignette, although it isn't something I've tried myself so don't have first-hand experience.

I just tried a Angenieux 8-64mm on a R16.

It definitely gives you a looking-through-a-porthole effect at 8mm.

Even at 64mm, there is still darkening of the corners. Unusable.

I would assume any zoom designed for a super8 camera would give a similar effect.

Cheers,
