I wonder if I could find a reverse perspective lens besides the unique Elite optics has build? This one is too long and I am searching for about 50-100 mm one.
I've heard there are some still photo lens samples....

Elite is the only one - bacause ex-LOMO engineers were the only ones who managed to design a working lens. And they had '80s equipment and a tiny "R&D" facility, no aspherical elements or exotic glass. It's called Russian optical school. :)

 

By long, do you mean its focal length? You can actually shoot a portrait on one - it's been done. Not useful for wider shots though.
