Go for the Tamron 28-75 f2.8. Reasonably inexpensive (especially used), and it's an absolutely wonderful lens. Sharp as a bag of primes, and it's an extremely useful zoom range. You lose a little on the wide end, but I don't miss it much. Plus it's excellent for low light shooting, and the focus is lightning quick (for a K-01 at least).

Only dice is it's a bit on the heavy side. But the K-01 still feels remarkably balanced with it attached.
