Using This Weird and Dangerous Looking Bazooka Lens Might Even Get You Killed

Mathieu Stern happened to stumbled upon this weird looking at a garage sale while looking around in Paris in 2016. Although he was looking for a small lens for 5 Euros, he picked up this mammoth 600mm lens for just 15 Euros.

The “ lens” Novoflex 600mm lens looks very close to what an actual bazooka looks like, and features a Pistol Grip follow focus system that was first introduced in 1955 in West Germany. It features 28 blades and I love how Mathieu had to go far far away from the Paris city to test and play with the lens.

The average retail price of the lens was about $600.
