how's the Super Takumar 24mm 3.5 IQ anyone?

i saw one yesterday but priced at 100us. is it worth buying this lens? actually my first time to notice that this lens do exist.
how's the lens compared to lets say the super tak 35 3.5 or M28 2.8 IQ wise?

I don't have one, but here's some info:

S-M-C/Super Takumar 24mm F3.5 Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database

and

http://www.takinami.com/yoshihiko/photo/lens_test/pentax_superwide.html

Sounds pretty decent, but I think the later (Pentax-badged f2 and f2.8) versions are even better!

This was my walkaround lens (amongst a wide selection of manual Tak lenses I had access to) until very recently, as my failing eyesight necessitates a move to auto-focus lenses. Consequently I, too, am selling the remainder of my beloved Taks (85 SMC 1.9, 135 SMC 2.5, 100mm SMC Macro, etc.)..... I'll be putting them up on the Marketplace soon, as a matter of fact (my super will also be selling for $100, by the way), if I don't garner any local interest with the New York City Craigslist ad I placed a few minutes ago.

Those are French Taks..... I'm not certain, but I've heard unsubstantiated rumors suggesting that for some reason they rarely work properly on this side of the ocean.

Not in my experience.
