ZF Lens set for hd200 and DOF

I am looking at getting a set of lenses for my HD200 to be used with my 35mm DOF adapter
the P+S Mini35C.

This is the set I am looking at... does it sound adequate? I will be doing mostly music videos but don't want to limit myself to that. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

Zeiss ZF Prime Set
28mm F2.0
35mm F2.0
50mm F1.4
85mm F1.4

You need some wide lenses in there. A normal wide lens for 35mm would be an 18mm, but for music videos I usually use a 12mm or 14mm (corrected or uncorrected for the Busta Rhymes look.)
Here's a sample of the 12mm uncorrected lens (slightly fisheye.)

Sorry I haven't updated by website in about 8 years so this is a little smaller than we're used to these days.

Also, I find that a 28mm and a 35mm in the same kit are usually redundant (it's easier to move the dolly slightly instead of change a lens.) If it were me I'd swap the 28mm for an 18mm and then add a 14mm or 12mm.
