As wide aperture lenses go, The Canon 65mm f/0.75 is probably one of the more ridiculous options one could consider. Initially this lens was designed for x-ray machines, but photographers can now adapt it to mirrorless cameras. 

When you think of the best lenses for bokeh, chances are that you're probably thinking of something like the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 Art lens. This huge, behemoth of a lens can not only produce incredibly sharp results, but also some of the most bokeh-filled backgrounds possible. However, if all you're after is some mind-bending bokeh, this x-ray lens from Canon be exactly what you're looking for.
