the fastest lens in the history of photography

    Once arguing about the tangible difference of two fifty dollars, I became interested, what is the fastest? So, the fastest lens in the history of photography is Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f / 0.7. It was designed and made specifically for the Apollo American lunar program for shooting the dark side of the moon, according to the drawings of a night vision device for Nazi guns.



    Stanley Kubrick used these lenses when shooting his film Barry Lyndon. Which allowed him to shoot scenes only by candlelight. The lens was also used when filming such films as “Schindler's List”, “English Patient”, “Shakespeare in Love”.



    Also, Stanley Kubrick and his three lenses are one of the points of the theory of the “lunar conspiracy”, allegedly Kubrick is the author of the video of the moon landing.
    There are only 10 of these lenses in total, one for Carl Zeiss, six for NASA, and three for Kubrick.
