PENTAX K20D plus lens

Hi guys. I just bought Pentax K20D and now I'm debating which lens would be better for 15MPX camera. Pentax 16-45mm or Tamron 28-75mm??? I know they different but lets say the main factor is here sharpness, colors and bokeh??? Thanks a lot.
regards
Mario

The Pentax 16-45 has rave reviews in the lens review database. When in doubt, look the lens up.

Humm, I have both. The 16-45 gets a lot more use since it was added. The Tamron is a great sharp and fast lens with a decent close focus ability. If you want a wide lens then get the 16-45. If you want a mid to longer and faster lens, get the Tamron.

Although my 16-45 gets more use, the one thing I do feel sometimes is I wish it was longer.

Either way, you can't go wrong and both sell for the same price range. I think you'll find a 16-45 in the marketplace right now around $200 or so.
