I think that somewhere I'd heard of such a thing, but I can't remember if it was on the internet or in a dream.
At one time someone posted a message indicating that the Nikkor T-1200 ED would *just* cover 12X20 at infinity. If so, it should have a lot more coverage at distances of less than 40', unless there is some vignetting from the barrel.

No idea of the current price of such a lens, but probably fairly expensive.
