I didn't read pages 2 or 3, so I apologize if someone already mentioned this one. Last sold for 50,000 at auction, considered to be one of the rarest lenses (you'll need an adapter).

Nikon Fisheye Nikkor F5.6 6.2-mm SAP . It has a 230 degree view. Literally can see behind itself.

When I think of Exotic, I think of the Canon 5200mm lens. Its not only exotic, but quite impractical. Its mounted on rails.

Then there is my 2 element lens from a WWII B25 Bomber that would make a good front element.

It could be a large aperture wide angle lens. They can have a large front element as well. It has a lot of curvature, so its at least a fairly wide angle lens. If I could only adapt it to my camera
