I feel torn between the Pentax 18-135, Tamron 17-50 2.8 and the Tamron 70-200 2.8!
The Tamron 10-24 and 70-200 2.8 are on my list. There are simply too many times when I've needed the 2.8. The DA* 60-250 is a great lens, but the F-4 is it's only weakness. It'll be years before I have every lens I want.

I'm shooting at 800 ISO with a K20D. YOu wouldn't see that kind of noise if I was shooting with a K-5, and you wouldn't see it if I'd taken a little more time in PP, but it's a web/photojournalism kind of shot and for that kind of shot, that amount of noise doesn't bother me. In my opinion, you are definitely pushing the limits shooting at ISO 800 on a K20D, although most of them turned better than that shot.
