The colors with the Sigma lens seemed the dullest.

Yea, the Sigma color rendition is far away from the Pentax... But the Pentax just for the moment does not have normally right-angle lens with F=8 or 10 mm. So I use Sigma...

Yes. It is also interesting to compare the size of files with similar images. The Sigma file is the lightest, the DA* 16-50 file has medium size (+200 Kb from the Sigma one), the most largest is the Limited one (+ more 200 Kb).

Sigma is not as good as 2 pentax lenses yes, not in same price level anyway.

Winner is not easy, 16-50 maybe looks little better to me...maybe

I have been a little bit afraid that the HD Lim 20-40 is a "cut-out" version of the DA* 16-50 in metal body only.
I am glad that the Lim 20-40 is absolutely new lens.
But this is looking unsatisfactory for me also...

Sorry, these terrible days I have no time to shoot during the sunny time of the days. Next week-end, I mean, no earlier...

I'd like to see DNG files in good light condition from 20-40...If it's real, upload, please, to yandex.disk, for example.

Thank you. I've converted this image in DXO 8.3.

I don't understand this lens - to say honest.
It's not bad...But I don't think it's good for me. I prefer sharper lenses.
