canon fd lens resources for letus35

hi everyone. any recommendations on where to get canon fd lenses aside from ebay? i currently have 28mm, 50mm and 28-105mm lenses, but i'm in the lookout for more. specifically, i'm looking for a 20mm or 18mm wide lens, and i'm interested in seeing some sample footage with a fisheye lens as well.

any reliable retail sources?

also, if anyone has sample footage from other lenses to share, i would love to take a look at it. if you want screencaps of any of my lenses, i would love to share them as well.

thanks in advance!

I bought some very very good USED canon fd lenses at www.bhphotovideo.com. You don't have to worry because it's writen down the exact condition of the lenses. I bought 3 and they are working perfectly.

thanks for the responses, guys! to be specific, i'm having trouble finding wide sub-24mm lenses. is this a canon-specific issue? are nikon lenses more readily available?

Thanks for the link to KEH! I just placed an order for a super wide angle to use with the Letus35. The B&H used area looks super promising also. Great tips guys!
