Thanx Pentaxians,

I chose Sigma 24-70 and Sigma 17-50. I had a chance to test focal ranges by using my friends Canon who has 24-105 L and 17-55 f2.8 lenses.
Any of 24-70 and 17-50 focal ranges are fine with me. I am so mean on wide angle difference of 7mm (it is huge difference), but it can be handled with my 18-250.
But the main thing is that if there are the lenses available at only one local lens store where sometimes Pentax gear sold.
I go to the shop and see if there is any of the lenses. If not I will shop online.

Of course I will buy one of these two.
Sigma 24-70 is high prior, 17-50 is less prior.

Have you considered the DA 16-50?
On a small budget ?

If the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 comes out in the next two months, it would be a superb wedding lens. The street price should be 800 dollars, so that might be a bit over your budget...

The tamron 17-50 is a very solid choice. You said you had a small budget so I would think the 16-50 is a little to much.
