My lens is back and focusing faster than ever. I hope whatever the fix is sticks this time.

DA* 16-50mm... To buy or not to buy??

Hello... Ok, I am new at this and I am very interested in what appears to be an old post! I have a Pentax K-5 ... I just recently purchased the Pentax DA* 50-135 and it is indeed a great lens! I was pretty much determined to purchase the Pentax DA* 16-50 to complete my bag, until I read all this very negative reviews about this lens! I saw some Excellent photos that were taken with this lens and I read a few good reviews..but the Bad sounded pretty BAD!! I just don't have $12,000.00 to gamble on a lens..therefore, does anyone have this combination of lens and camera? What is your take on it?
Thanks for your help!!
