WIDE angle lenses and my intro.

I have just now discovered this forum/group while "Googling" for old Pentax 35mm WIDE angle lenses. My Pentax history began in 1968 while stationed with the USN on Guam. While there I purchased among many other "goodies" a Spotmatic with the 50mm Takumar, a 135 and 35mm lens. Then, later while active in South Vietnam I picked up a 300 and 24mm lens along with closeup bellows system etc. Now, a long time later and retired, I have a K10,20,and 5. All pretty impressive, but I miss being involved in the photographic process! Put the 20 in my wife's hands along with the 16-45 and 55-300mm DA lenses for her instant gratification. I'm having a ball with the old glass making my own decisions! Anyway, I'm looking for a 15mm lens for my K5. The unit available from B&H looks good, but there is an older lens out there that has my interest. Looks like the $ issue for both is about the same. Do any of you have input to guide my quest? I would like to stay with genuine Pentax glass, but if You have good experience with aftermarket lenses I will appreciate your suggestions.

This forum is FULL of people crazy for the DA 15 limited. Look at this:

It goes on and on and on. They have convinced me that the 15ltd is my next purchase.
