Well anyone that can correctly identify the lens deserves the prize.

I have no idea how to tell if it is a Nikon, Canon, Sigma, Zeiss , Sony etc. etc. but as a guess, due to the current promotion, I will say it is an Olympus Lens.

Well if its the owners house with that car they have a lot of money! So my guess 50mm 1.2L.

If it's taken on:

a full-frame camera, I'd say it's probably a 50mm.

an APS-C camera, I'd say that it's probably a 30mm.

a four-thirds camera something else completely

a micro 4/3rds something even smaller
etc...

Unlikely to be the "Not yet released" Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Lens, nor the Samsung NX2000 with 18-55mm ...

my guess: Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Wide Angle Lens.
