"Starburst" SMC 15mm F4 Limited or 55-300 WR PLM

Looking for a functional SMC (not HD) 15mm limited to round out my starting lenses for a K-3 ii. Both the wide angle and and the pretty starbursts are of interest to me, and should uniquely help fill out my range options.

Alternatively, I'm interested in acquiring a DA 55-300 PLM WR version for a zoom since I'd rather invest in the more expensive version the first time around - I can live with the auto-shop sounds of the non-PLM version but the speed seems really compelling.

Obviously these are at extremes of the spectrum but at present I can't afford both: I'm keeping my eye out for either for a good deal on the 15 Limited (ugly or pristine, it seems an inevitable part of my collection) or any deal on the 55-300 PLM since it's WR and will eventually be obtained to give me some range. In magical Christmasland either of these would be under $300 but your idea of a fair price is worth considering.
