Where do I find old Takumar lenses?

I'm looking for the 15mm f3.5 Takumar lens, but I can't find it on eBay or here, and I'm not sure where else to look. Any ideas?

A very good and reliable source is keh.com out of Atlanta.

If you're looking for the M42 version (Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 15/3.5) then you won't find one. They're so rare that they are all in the hands of collectors not wanting to get rid of one.

If you're looking for the K-mount versions (both K and A) then wait around a bit, I have seen 2 or 3 over the past year on eBay and keh.

Ok, thanks for the tip. I'm basically looking for a super-wide for my future PZ-1P, and I'd prefer rectilinear to fisheye. I'd also prefer that it's not a tank like the Sigma 14/2.8. Any other ideas?
