Of actual Pentax branded ones I have the 18-135 and 50, of ones I would like to have the 250-600 and 60-250, especially if that 1.4 tc was tossed in there.

so in the recent year I sold off my da35 and don't have a use for my 18-55 any more all I have is two Tamron's now. They are the Tamron 17-55 2.8 and the Tamron 70-200 2.8 so I would go with my two Tamron's

My DA 15 and FA 43. In reality a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 spends the most time on my K5. Really any non-sdm (DC is fine) lens is welcome in my bag. Won't anyone pick the new DA 20-40?

Today, my answer is the SMC 17mm f/4 Fish-Eye and the DA40 Limited.
Tomorrow? maybe the Tak 300 and A50 macro?

That's a tough order.
Since I primarily am outside and this is a hobby for me, I need something light, and would want something also for low light / landscape.

DA 18-135mm wr
FA* 24mm /f2

I'd rent a 50-135 or 60-250 for those times I'd actually use it

DA SMC 15 and FA 31. I'll have to break the rules a bit and also add the 6x7 105mm 2.4 to the list because it's becoming one of my favourite normals for medium format.
