Love my 7Artisans 35mm 1.2. Not a perfect lens but there's absolutely no bigger bang for the buck. It is a difficult lens to find though.

Yes, I see this is backordered. Must be a popular item!

It is widely available, not sure why it would be difficult to find?

Examples:

There's also been a price-drop since I ordered mine 6 months ago

For a long time, this lens was backordered. I had an order with B&H but cancelled it after a month because it kept showing back order. It was also back ordered on Amazon for a long time but then they finally got a shipment in and I received my lens after about two weeks from the time I place the order because it was shipped directly from China. My cost was $145 with no shipping fee. What I really like about this lens is that is very small and I was looking for a small, fast, point-and-shoot type lens for inside and this fits the bill perfectly.
