36mm Macro Switar for H8 on H16?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  Wondering if the image circle is big enough for 16 or S16 to work at all on S16. 

Came across this interesting video of someone using it on a BMPCC.  It's cropped, but it looks surprisingly good when he gets to the 36mm macro shots (even though it's cropped).  I shoot on a S16 modified EBM and have a set of Switar primes, and as long as it's standard C-mount and the focal flange and image circle are "decent" enough to get some trick close-ups and macro shots of eyes that look all dreamy, it could be of use...just didn't know if this had been covered or anyone has experience...  The 36mm seems sharp...would be nice...

Is the coverage good on that lens for BMPCC / S16 sensor size without vignetting?

The H8 primes have a shorter flange focal distance than standard C mount, so you can't use them on a 16mm Bolex.
