M42 lenses in Toronto

Are there any stores left that sell new or used lenses with the M42 mount also known as the Practica, Pentax and Universal mount?

Thanks for any help.

You can find them in thrift stores, antique shops, used camera stores. Pretty much anywhere...

And if you don't already have a Spotmatic to go with those lenses and want one, he can sell you that too.

I also recommend Mike. I have bought a number of M42 and K-mount manual lenses from him over the last couple of years. Always excellent value, plus he was accommodating for local pick up.

Mike seems to be the go-to for GTA people, reputation counts for a lot, especially when it seems to be such consistent positive experiences.
