This frame was extrated from the movie "Uncommon valor" (1983)

looks to me a non working combo, extension rings + some cheap Japanese tele lens

Sometimes I laugh out loud in cinemas when such things are presented.
Look at that supposed lens - what would it be ..... maximum aperture of f32, f56........ or something equally ludicrous.
Hand held, the shutter speed would be so low that any detail would be ...... you get the idea.....
Reminds me of the battle scene in Braveheart where the Scots are charging across the field, and the rubber blades of the axes are visibly wobbling - very scary.... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
OH

Lens in front is the common Tokina made 500/8 mirror tele.
It's a t-mount lens.
Its on some sort of long extension tube.
This setup would still be f/8 but extreme macro.

The mirror lens can be found in many brands like Camron and Lentar.

Director: "I want the lens to be more impressive, make it longer."

At first I thought of novoflex without the stock but I think you are right it's a made up lens. One of many little fictions only moviemakers do.

It looks like one of those riflecam things the CIA uses to assassinate people.

Heh, I get more "whoa" from people with my Tair-3 than my friends who have Canon 100-400. Seriously they should have just used Tair-3 for this shot.

Thank you everybody for your contributions. I uploaded the movie to my website (link) giving acknowledgements to MFlenses forum. Sorry, but the web is in spanish. if someone is able to identify the camera or the extension tube, would be great, but I know is very difficult. There is no other (pictures) points of view. That tube reminds me the rear element of the Leitz Telyt 800mm f/6.3. Could be?

The camera is a black Nikon F or F2 or FTn with the Photomic prism.

I don't think it's a Nikon, more likely an M42 camera, so likely a Pentax or Fujica as they made black M42 SLRs, so did Ricoh. Definitely not a Photomic head, those stick up a lot more than the prism on his camera does.
