Wich lenses shoudl I buy?

hello, I have a K-5 and am currently using only a FA 28-70mm f4. I now have CAD 10k that I can use to buy new lenses. My hobby shots are Wildlife, nature, Family, and Low Light - high action in theater photos wich lenses should I buy? I was thinking of getting a pentax DA*16-50mm 2.8, a Pentax DA* 50-135mm 2.8, a sigma 50-500mm 4.5-6.3, and a pair of sigma 2X converters + apropriate filters and hoods, ect. any better suggestion?

You might also want to post this in our regular discussion sections.

If you're looking to spend that much, then I'd seriously consider one of these two lenses for wildlife/low-light photography:
Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Pentax 589109 B&H
Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG Autofocus Lens for Pentax 195109 B&H

BTW, all the lenses you listed above come with their own hoods in the box

Thanks I need to get some really good ones because people are now starting to offer money for my Dance performance photos because I have an eye and good timing, however I don't feel comfortable selling them because I need higher ISO right so they are Grainy, and my lenses are a little softer than I would like. but I had some bonus money come to me, so I can play a little and use it as an investment in Photography
