A reverse perspective lens from Elite. Look at examples in the pictures. Very bizarre. Wouldn't know what to use it for, but maybe could be useful for some force perspective stuff or generally compressing backgrounds into foregrounds in a flatter manner...

This is like bending my brain. A lens that reverses common perspective physics is an interesting piece for 25k.

Oooh! Very cool find. I wonder if anyone stocks these for rentals? I've got a horror film coming up that this would be perfect for.

 

 

Edit: Nevermind, it only focusses between 20mm - 750mm

Yeah interesting but pretty limited effects lens, not sure who would pay that much for it.

I think it may have been used in Sokurov's Faust for certain shots:
