I am extremely happy with the DA* 16-50/2,8. The DA 16-45/4,0 would be a good choice as well. Note that with the same aperture at both ends of the zoom range, these are large, heavy lenses.

I don't find the 16-45 to be too heavy. The Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 is also a good choice.

Hmmm Pentax 2,8 sounds good, but it is too expensive After some review reading i am considering Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) and Sigma EX 2,8/24-60.

I have heard that there is many bad pieces of Tamron ( front focus), so it is very risky to buy it on the net. What about Sigma...

and Tokina AT-X 287 AF PRO SV 28-70mm f/2.8
