Noted Differences: 

50 Watt BR30 Halogena' Bulb.  This is your best replacement option.  Same exact bulb and lower wattage!  We know it seems odd to go for a 40 watt bulb, but because of it's manufacturing, Philips has produced this bulb to have very similar light output as what you have been use to.  They call it an Energy Saver or an Energy Advantage Bulb.   

Incandescent Option:  Same exact bulb but light output is quite a bit less.

PAR30L Option:  The actual glass is an indoor/outdoor glas so it will be harder and rather than a dome on the end the glass will be rippled.  Halogen bulbs do produce more heat than incandescent bulbs but it is at a safe level.  We mention this for your comfort only.  This bulb is shorter and you will want to consider adding a socket extender than can be used perminently with this socket to bring the bulb back out to the edge of the can.  Be sure and compare overall lengths here. Click Here to see the socket extenders.

Compact Fluorescent Options:  Notice one is dimmable and one is non dimmable.  You will get a brighter bulb/more lumens with a non dimmable cfl.  You CAN NOT even use a non dimmable CFL on a circuit with a dimmer switch or the bulb will blow prematurely.  These bulbs are the same width but not the same length.  Please notice the length and see if it will work in your can.
