Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 II Lens
eBay (via BestStopDeals) has the Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 II Lens (review) available for $86.99 with free shipping. Compare at $125.00.
 
Note: This is likely a grey market item and therefore not technically eligible for a Canon USA warranty.
 
For what it's worth, I think the newly released EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is worth the added investment. [Sean]
 
Differences between the STM and "II" versions:
 
  • 7 rounded aperture blades vs. 5 non-rounded (no more pentagonal bokeh)
  • Metal lens mount vs. plastic
  • A much improved manual focus ring
  • STM vs. Micro Motor (should be faster and much quieter)
  • FTM (Full Time Manual) focusing
  • 13.8" (350mm) MFD (Minimum Focus Distance) vs. 17.7" (450mm)
  • 0.21x MM (Maximum Magnification) vs. 0.15x
  • 49mm vs. 52mm filter size (though not really an advantage from my perspective)
  • Narrower f/22 aperture available vs. f/16

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens review page.
 
We know that this lens has the same optics as the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens. Here is the Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM compared to the 50mm f/1.8 II.
 
Look at this lens' image quality at f/4 and then look at the price tag. Very nice.

Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens
From the Lomography Lomography Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens Kickstarter Campaign:
 
Swirl to Freedom with the World’s First Petzval Bokeh Control Lens
 
Bokeh Like a Boss
Using the Bokeh Control Ring on the New Petzval 58, you’re totally free to determine the strength of the swirly bokeh in your photos. You can now get the characteristic swirly bokeh effect in ways it has NEVER been possible before. This revolutionary component is the first of its kind on a Petzval lens!
 
58mm Focal Length and Maximum f/1.9 Aperture
The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.9 and is a 58mm lens, which is a fantastic all-round focal length for portraits, landscapes and photos of your cat doing jumping jacks. We promise you will love shooting every scene with your New Petzval 58 in hand.
 
Premium Russian Glass Optics in a Beautiful Brass Body
The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens features the finest quality Russian glass optics. Available in a brass or black finish, it’s designed to perfectly mirror the look of original 19th century Petzval lenses.
 
Look Back to the Future
Joseph Petzval invented his revolutionary Petzval optic in 1840 — a hugely popular portrait lens that changed the world of photography. Now, 175 years later and building on our success with the Lomography New Petzval 85mm Lens in 2013, the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens is here to join the growing Lomography Art Lens Family. The lens has been specially developed to work with modern analogue and digital cameras and is available in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts (it’s also compatible with multitudes of other cameras such as the Sony A7, Fuji X-Pro 1 and Micro 4/3 Cameras using adapter mounts).
 
For more info, check out the Lomography Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens Kickstarter Campaign.
