Firstly welcome to the forum, it's not so easy to find these great types of lenses these days.

You could watch the Photographers Marketplace section of this forum or perhaps even put in a message yourself in the wanted section.

Otherwise it's the usual sources and Ebay I'm afraid.

Good luck in your quest, let us all know how you get on.

Check Adorama.com's used section. There's one there now for $149, rated Excellent.
You could probably do better price-wise here, but you might be waiting a while

They also have an M 85mm for $209. Had them both in my basket, then took a metaphorical walk around the block...

Hi John

There were 2 up for sale on ebay this month. One went for 139 EUR from Germany. They come up reasonably frequently.

I may be able to help!

I have one in excellent condition that I am willing to part with. I have far too many lenses at or near this focal length. I will let it go for $125. If you are interested, send me a PM and I will send you some photos of the lens. As other have noted, it has very pleasant rendering characteristics, and is amazingly compact.

Not sure if this was tongue-in-cheek or not, but for the record, that's not a good deal. KEH has them for between $100 and $200 depending on condition, and that's the going rate on Ebay too.

$360 for both - it would be tough to find anything with the same IQ for $360...
You should have taken two walks around the block

Yes, failed attempt at humor. Should have added the smilies!
