Would probably be my FA* 24mm f/2 - My favourite lens to shoot on the K-3 and K-50 is the Rokinon 16mm f/2, so the same field of view on FF will be nice

Sigma 10-20 so I could figure out the smallest usable focal length. After that, probably one of the Samyang 35 or 85mm f/1.4's I just picked up.

Probably my A 28/2.8. That or a fast fifty. My SMC Pentax 135/2.5 might also get used more...I find it a bit odd on APS-C..too close for most stuff, but still not long enough when I want a long lens.

Decisions, decisions. Maybe the K 55mm f/1.8 to shoot a pic of the D700 for eekBay.

Probably (unless LBA strikes and I get something cooler!) an 8-element SuperTak 50/1.4.

The 24mm f/2.8 K, and then take a walk up a hill. Look forward to using those great old wide-angle lenses.

I'd mount my Sigma EX 14/2.8 a lens that I bought in 2007, and drive up to the Blue Mountains to take a photo of the Megalong valley with the three sisters in the foreground. Next would be the FA 20/2.8 followed by the FA 31.

With all the lenses we wanted to use when it comes the day we finally own one of this full frame Pentax, I really really hope Ricoh has un-cripple the K-mount...

Probably my SMC-F 50mm/1.7 looking out the nearest window.
then the FA 20-35
then the Tamron 70-200/2.8
then the F 35-70
then ...
(you get the idea)

I want to see the FA31 work as a wide angle lens. That would have to be my first.
We'll have to meet for that!....I"ll bring my F*300 or will it be a F*200 then?

Man I can see swapping lenses between my K3 and the new full frame is going to be a challenge for my anticipated dementia infused later years.

You ordered a body-only kit of the released announced FF body. It arrived. After unpacking the camera and inserting the half charged battery inside you must choose a lens from your collection to mount on it.

Which lens would you pick?

What will you photograph as IMGP0001.DNG/PEF/JPG?

Remember, you only have one chance at doing either of those two thing for the first time!

Personally, I would mount my FA 77mm Limited and take a picture of the nearest family member.
Without any doubt, FA 31. Then Tokina 90 2.5. :-)
