The buyer indicates that it won't cover super35, although I would have guessed it would. 

 

I'm confused how a 16mm lens with a symmetrical design (tessar) can even exist in bayonet mount with a flange focal distance of 52mm. 

 

Anyhow, anyone know anything? It wouldn't happen to cover super35, would it? Is there a family of similar lenses... not much info on these guys.

 

I know the Jena vs Zeiss history. More concerned with this particular lens.
