Art/drawing experts: does non-photo blue lead come for a mechanical pencil in any size other than 2mm? [details inside]

I use Sanford Col-erase pencils to rough my comics. I'd love to switch to a mechanical pencil to do pencil work, but the only size of NP-blue I've ever found in drawing lead were the 2mm monsters for Turquoise (brand, not color) drafting pencils.
I can get mechanical pencil lead in .05, .07, and .09mm sizes for red and normal blue, but both are a no-go when it comes to scanning inked finals. I need non-photo blue or nothing else.
I've Googled and checked art stores for months now, to no avail. Does anyone know if thinner non-photo leads exist?
