The 16-45mm is definitely a lens to consider, the purple fringing cleans up a treat. And it's noticeably wider than the kit, as well as sharper.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this. SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm F3.5-4.5 Reviews - F Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database. Starts a bit longer but is fantastic, and you can't argue with the price they go for. Some of the old manual focus lenses are great as well, as long as you're ok with MF of course.

I'm fine with MF lenses. A lot of my best lenses are MF, in fact. I'm in the market for something starting out around 18mm, though... Also, I already have a terrific Pentax-A 35-105 MF zoom, so buying the 35-70 would be redundant. Thanks for the input, tho. :-)
