Does anyone know what kind of lens Robby Müller used in Paris, Texas where he focus on both characters at the same time, but they are in different depth, yet everything else is blurry.

I am not sure of the specific shot you are referring to but from my knowledge it could be either a swing shift lens or he could have used a split diopter, From memory Robby likes to use them a bit.

I think he got the camera from Otto's and I think it was prior to the swing and tilt craze. It was probably a split dioptor with Zeiss Speeds or Super Speeds. I'm not sure when the Super Speeds came out but they were relatively new in 1986.
