Kinetal primes for S16

Depends on how you define good. They're 30+ years old, are a little soft, flare very easily, have poor resolving power in the corners, suffer various chromatic abberations and other issues. But in general they're better than primes from Angenieux, Schneider or some Kinoptiks. They are certainly inferior to CP Ultra-T or Zeiss SuperSpeeds. You get what you pay for, and these lenses should only be a few hundred dollars each. Note that there was no such thing as Super-16 when these lenses were designed, so you'll need to check whether they cover. And in the days before computer-aided design and construction, every single lens was a little different, so you need to check them out individually.
