Sigma 30mm f/1.4, DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro or DA 35mm f/2.4. Forget the manual lenses because accurate focusing gets trickier with wide angles.

so why doesn't pentax make a good basic 28mm anymore?
Because that would be too logical for Pentax!

The FA 31 Limited is the best "normal" lens on APS-C, bar none. Most of my really good photos were taken with it.

I have both the M28/3.5 and the F28/2.8, and I prefer the F. Autofocus, very sharp, and I like the FOV on APS-C. They're hard to find, though.
