Pentax in Prague


I am going to Prague, Czech Republic, in just over a week. Does anyone know of nice spots to hunt for old Pentax stuff or other m42-goodies?

Don't know what to expect from those markets, but some Russian lenses should pop up, and maybe some Exacta as well.

Some good M42 glass, the owner even has a ME super with Takumar A 28 3.5 behind the counter but you have to ask for it,166.43,,0,0.6

Every weekend morning (say 8-14) there is a fleamarket where you can get m42 glass with some luck. It is metro station Kolbenova and then just follow the crowd.

I will look to see what comes up at those two spots. I will also try to locate the flea market.
