Hi,

Do you guys know if the Schneider Arriflex Cine Xenon 28mm f2 covers super 16 ?
And the Zeiss Jena Arriflex 35mm f/2 ?
And Schneider-Kreuznach Cinegon 16mm 1.4 ? All of them on arri st mount.

It's 35 mm lenses so it should cover super 16 gate ?

But i've redden that some short focal length doesn't. It's for mount on an arri SR2 super 16 modified and PL mount.

Thanks a lot

The 28 and 35 certainly cover, the 16 was made for 16mm, but it probably covers.

Any 35mm format lens will easily cover S16. In fact the image circle will be so much larger that you need to be careful of any shiny areas in the mirror cavity around the gate that may reflect light back onto the film.

Schneider never made a 16 for 35mm format, only for 16mm and CCTV. The 1.4/16 Cinegon was the CCTV design for 1" tubes, so it will cover S16. But it was built to lower specifications than the 16mm format Cine-Xenons, 1.9/16 (for S16) and the earlier 2/16, which vignettes.
