Great thanks guys, do you think it will work well with the Helios? Also I'm trying to work out what the final aspect ratio would be on super 16? The same as the bmpcc I'm guessing?

I think that might be second widest to 16h in below $500 lenses.   But need to use small diameter prime lens.

Hi Ken, thanks for the reply but I'm not quite sure what you mean? Cheers

Wider means less  vignetting for using the same prime lens.  I still own it.  It has similar size as 16F.  But shorter, and have bigger front glass.  So it could be used on wider taking lens.  So I just simply said it is wider.

Dan, the Helios is fine. I personally like to pair my Sankor 16F to Mir-1B 37mm f2.8. The Mir has a long focus through and it is easier to match them for sharp focus. I would suggest getting hold of one, as the Helios is, I think, triple the focal distance on 16mm film. I shot this video using a Sankor - Mir combo (no diopters, filters or any sharpening in post added):
