B&H has the Lensbaby 50mm f/2.5 Sweet Spot Spark lens for $99.95 (reg. $199.95) as its Deal Zone deal for today only. The lens is available in Canon EF or Nikon F mounts. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Ricoh has unveiled that the full frame Pentax HD FA 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW lens for K-mount cameras will ship in July for $1199.

While compatible with K-mount cameras for shooting operations, the electromagnetic diaphragm-control mechanism is only available when the lens is mounted on a Pentax K-1 Mark II, K-1, K-3 II, K-3, KP, K-70, K-S2 or K-S1 camera body.
