My solution for this dilemma is DA 10-17, DA 12-24, DA 16-45, SP 28-75, EX 70-200... :-)

DA 16-45 is almost useless because of the small cap it fills in the line, but actually it mostly sits in my backup (K100D) and DA 10-17 is for special purposes only because it is a fish eye.

Very good lens, well built, fast, almost as good IQ as the DA* 16-50, and its far cheaper.

But just isn't wide enough for me, I find the DA* 16-50 is much more suited to my style. I don't miss the 75mm end anywhere near as much as I miss the 16mm end,
