never heard of these lenses. Panther Cinar. Anyone know about them? Visual Products sells a couple of them. There's also one on ebay. The seller claims it covers 3k.

They are Super16 lenses, so I'd be careful without trying them out to see if they cover. Super16 is a fair bit smaller than the BMC.....vignette

It looks like these lenses are designed similarly to the Zeiss Super Speeds, and if that's the case, I'd expect the 35mm to cover the BMC without any problems, since the 16mm & 25mm from the Zeiss Super Speeds will cover the BMC just fine. Still, as Thekreative points out, you should probably test before you buy wherever possible.

These are serious pro lenses. But even if it probably covers, expect soft corners.
This is not necessarily bad, since 35mm on that sensor might be used more for faces than architecture or landscape.
