You can snag a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (No WR, screwdrive focus, but great lens) for ~350 used pretty easily, and a Pentax 18-135 WR for a good outdoor walk around lens (I actually shot a wedding with it and the people LOVED the pics, it's also decently sharp, but not a fast constant aperture) for ~350 used, so for the used price of the Pentax 16-50 f/2.8 you can have a couple good lenses that will cover most things.

Go to Maui to get a lens? What`s wrong with that idea?:-)
Only downside I see is paying 4% sales tax (vs. B&H/Adorama no sales tax), and the shipping (me) is a little pricey, but worthwhile.
Samy's of Los Angeles (the only Pentax dealer) doesn't stock 18-135WR, or much else for Pentax.
