I purchased mine from eBay, but there is also a Porst version that is the same lens (55mm f1.7 Macro)..

It's really a shame that there isn't a native k-mount version of this lens. I know that I can get an adapter, but still...

agreed.... but there is a simple way to look at it: get an older body, put an OEM M42 adapter and ta-daaa! you have an M42 body!

Ha, oddly enough, I keep forgetting I already own an M42 film body. I never use the thing... and the best lens I own for it is a Takumar (of some sort, I don't remember if it's a Super or SMC) 55mm f2.0.

I really need to get some things together so I can start running film again at a serious clip.
