If you ordered one of Lomography's Petzval lenses on Kickstarter for as little as $300, you'd be forgiven for feeling a bit smug right now. First off, you may get it soon since the first 500 have now shipped, and secondly, it's put the brassy glass up for pre-order to new buyers for a considerably higher price of $599. The starter package does include extras on top of the lens and cap, though: a Petzval Art Lens book, seven standard aperture plates, four experimental plates and a leather pouch. If you've got a Canon EF or Nikon F camera, that'll let you take artsy shots with whirly bokeh and vignetting like the 1840 original, but with the sharpness of modern optics. Lomography said that pre-orders won't ship until May due to limited Russian production and a backlog of Kickstarter orders. If that and the new price don't dissuade you, however, you can grab one here.
