What to do?

Obviously i'd like to just keep buying any lens i'd like to use on the Super Program, but the budget doesn't allow for it, so the thought of replacing the 16-50 with a cheaper zoom and using nice KA primes when i care about a shot to be more than a snapshot keeps coming up.

This is where i hope this forum comes in.

Which are the hidden gems that come in KA mount? (i'd take non-A K too, just hoping for KA right now....and Yes, the Flektogon is M42, but i'd like to keep this as only M42 )
If i could add more KA Lenses to be used on either body I'd be less tempted to sell a lens i actually like the DA part aside.
IF they are budget gems, then i can add one here and there before December (Germany trip....hence the budget limitation)
I'm basically asking about the less talked about lenses that still impress you for one reason or the other, and be it contrast, color, detail, flare resistance that impresses you, share with me why you keep and *use* your budget gem KA lens
