if you can pop a bit more money, trade the sigma 18-55 in and get one of these (prices quoted from Camera Action):

- Pentax 16-45 SDM = A$415
- Pentax 17-70 SDM = A$775
- Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4.5 = A$549 (seems you already have something similar)
- Tamron 18-50 F2.8 : A$ 699 ( I recommend this one)

If the Pentax 18-55 does not have a hood, don't go for it, nor the sigma 18-55 ( for every reasons ) I have both of them and the Pentax (came with hood , front and rear caps ) is outperform the Sigma.
