My vote still goes to Nikon mount SLR lenses. Their cheap (by film
standards), sharp, and I find the large barrels lend themselves very well
focusing while handheld. Downside is they aren't particularily fast and
lenses aren't that wide in 16mm. You can get ACL-Nikon mounts occasionally
or a C-Nikon mount is easy to find and cheap. And they are great for S16
applications because you only use the inner (sharpest) portion of the
I just bought a Fujinon 12.5mm TV lens in c-mount. I'll post my results
that lens in the future.

I use them, but there's nothing fast or small below 20mm.
The original request was for a wide angle lens.

ps. As a side note does anyone know of a company that can convert the
ACL CA-1 mount to Nikon? The Moviehouse in England used to do it but
since discontinued.
