Will the Cosmicar-Pentax 8-48 lens cover S16mm?  It's a c-mount lens, for 1/2 inch chips.  The S16mm frame is .48 inches wide, so it would seem this lens would work.  I'd sure love to use this lens because it's super fast.  If anyone knows for sure, I'd sure appreciate it!

No.
 

Or better put, maybe maybe maybe at the very end of the range.

 

Even 2/3" lenses don't cover S16mm through their whole range.

 

Check the chart on this wikipedia for the actual sensor sizes, and you'll see how much smaller it is than S16mm

I have this lens and use it for Super 8 and I can tell you it doesn't cover Super 16, most lenses for 2/3 sensors won't cover Super 16 either, though some do, it's just a matter of trying different lenses out. For Super 16 I know that 1" CCTV lenses will definitely work and Fujinon and Canon lenses produce good images.
