Super 16, 35mm lens

I may have this all wrong.


Shooting super 16 with 35mm Zeiss super speeds. The guy at the rental house is telling me 35mm lens double in focal length if used on super 16mm cameras. I've done this a couple of times before and I don't remember the focal length doubling.


He's saying that since 35mm lens are made to cover twice the area of super 16 all of the light is focused on on the half size frame that it dobles the focal length, which does make sense, but I've never heard that it does that.


It does make sense though.
