I have a 10mm Angenieux now and a 10mm Switar on the way, and I'm looking forward to testing them against each other. I'm hoping someone else on this forum can tell us if the Angenieux will cover Super-16 or not (my guess is that it won't). I have been told that some of the Switars will cover - barely - while others will not.
The most obvious difference I can see between the the two lenses is that the Angenieux is a fixed-focus design, while the Switar has a focus ring and actually allows the user to focus quite close. The Angenieux also does not have filter threads, which I find quite annoying. The other Angenieux lenses in the range (15mm, 25mm, 50mm, and 75mm) all take the same hard-to-find Series 5.5 filters via a threaded retaining ring.

I've got a Super 16mm Bolex EBM and my Angenieux 5.9mm covers 99% of the frame with just a hint of vignetting arround the corners. If you are doing a DI or HD work just push in a little, little bit and you're done...
The Angenieux 10mm does not cover Super 16...

As I just wrote about a moment ago on another thread, a C-mount Cine-Nikkor 10mm JUST ended on Ebay tonight, and I could not bring myself to bid, since there were so many questions, and answers that were not dependable. But now I read that it does indeed cover Super16!!! Damn!!!!!!! And it ended for right around $200!!! Unless I am mistaken, it seems I have missed an opportunity to buy a very nice wide-angle lens which does cover Super16, and is also as rare as rocking horse manure. Can someone please verify this, so I can walk to the closet, separate all the right shoes from the left ones, put them on, and begin kicking myself in the rear?
