Here are the results of research on selected available camera sensors. For lenses, the varifocal 5-50mm (80 degress to 8 degrees) lens provides the widest selection for field of view, rather than a fixed focal length. A 2.8-12mm (130 to 28 degrees field of view) lens provides even wider field of view. For comparison, the human has a 2.97mm focal length for a 128 degree field of view.
