Thanks for all the insights so far! I've decided to pick up the 28-75 to give a look, ended up getting it for $250. Admittedly I wouldn't use the 70-200 that often, I used to shoot with the 70-200 f/4 version when I was shooting Nikon and ended up using it for maybe 500 or so shots only. Basically for when I took my daughter to the zoo and for compression on portraits.

I'll give a comparison when the 28-75 comes in, but with the K-1 I see myself using the primes the majority of the time because of the extra heft of the camera itself. For that reason I see myself going for the lighter 28-75 and add a UWA lens later on if needed.

That is a great price, please post pictures on FF! I was wondering myself the 28-75mm to 24-70mm comparison since I have the lens and I was tempted on getting a K-1.
