looking for a good 20 -70mm 2.8 lens

Hi
I've started working with models with a group of photographers . I am using my 35mm HD lens as a prime lens which gives great sharpness and very nice colors .
the 90mm fixed lens is a little to long and the "trips" lens the Sigma 18-250 is not fast enough (F stop is to high). looking for a good and sharp zoom lens between 20 to 70mm with F2.8 for the K3
I will be very happy happy to read experienced users
Thanks

Granted it's a bit slower, but the 17~70mm Sigma (and equivalent Pentax 17~70mm) are worth a hard look. You lose a stop @ the long end, but you gain a lot in convenience, and IQ is very good.
