Good day,

Thank you all for your replies. So I am more confused now, I know it' s a matter of how I will feel with the lens, cope with it and all of that, but I am afraid to spend the amount I would spend on the 15mm (which I really want for 8 months or so) , on a Sigma 17-50mm, for a baptism. I want to keep using the lens afterwards, and I don' t do weddings and baptisms- I just don' t (it ain' t my thing) , I was just forced into this one (sort of saying) . So I am doubtful...

Tamron, Pentax 35, Sigma 17-50 or Sigma 24?

The Sigma 17-70 isn' t in my country available and doesn' t have a constant F, thus it has `left` the decision table.

Thank you!

Well, I didn't know that! Not that it makes me happier now that I know... Hasn't this issue been addressed in software updates for the original K5? Can it be addressed that way, actually? (since it is, as you say, a design problem?)
Here you have a thorough report: LumoLabs
It's actually the main thing that makes me want to upgrade to the K5II/K5IIs.

IMO, the best lens indoors is the Sigma 30/1.4

Thanks, the report is very thorough indeed.
Well, I'll have to do some research about K5 II in this regard... or maybe wait for another body? Oh, but this is really a pain... The quest for perfect autofocus seems to be never ending...
