Sunita - To answer your question, I would suggest Keh (; their "bargain" grade is always good, and they are reputable. You might find lenses somewhat cheaper in pawn shops etc. or on ebay, but you can rely on Keh's ratings and warranty. Unfortunately they seem to have fewer and fewer M42 lenses. Before buying M42s that are not Pentax-made be sure to check compatibility and whether you will be able with your camera to take pictures with the diaphragm stopped down.
