M42 / OM / C/Y mount lenses?
Hey all, I've been looking around the BnS forum for lenses with the above mounts, and was wondering if any of you know if there are shops or places where these are available? Sungei Road, perhaps? eBay?
Anyone with experience on where to find them?

Oh wow, I didn't think of looking at Mass Sales.

Keeping my options open at the moment. Would you have any recommendations?
I've also heard about the AF-confirmation adaptors, and how they're somewhat unreliable. Would you know anything about that?

Af confirmation adaptors work alright, at least mine has no problem. Just that you still have to manual focus and wait for the 'beep' from your camera.
If you are lucky, you can get 50mm f1.4 for around $100 - $120 (asahi pentax)
