opinions 17-35 or 16-45?

looking to get something for the wide range, looking at the sigma 17-35 or the pentax 16-45 asking for opinions between them. I already have the 10-17 so the 12-24 is not really of intrest

Not sure why you're not getting any replies! I have the sigma 10-20mm but can't really help with regard to the lenses you're looking at. have you tried for reviews? that's always my first port of call. here:
Pentax SMC-DA 16-45mm f/4 ED AL - Photozone Review / Quick Test Report

sadly no review of the sigma.

Sigma 17-70 or Pentax DA* 16-50....? I have neither but owners of each seem to like them.

I would get the 16-50 over the 17-35 for the more-useful range.

Oops - make that the 16-45...though the 16-50 is a stop faster at twice the price :-)

if low light isnt an issue but money is, the 16-45mm f/4 is a def winner.
