If I read some of the last few posts, the consensus is that it must be fast. Is that indeed why one wants the 11-16? NogBoy13, you should have been clearer in that case

I love to see 11-16 f2.8 for pentax too
for indoor event photo, f2.8 is important
good thing there is a simga 10-20 f3.5, still relative fast, and more zoom range
I agree about the Sigma 10-20/3.5 - I have one, and it's a terrific lens in all respects - but unless you crave the extra half-stop or are looking for some more competition, I can't really see why Pentax should expend the effort, personally. Now, a fast 21 I'd be happy to support, or maybe even a modestly fast 12, but an 11-16 seems pointless, to me. On the other hand, a 10-30 could be interesting, especially if it was a 2.8 or a bit less. I might even trade in the Sigma for that.
