Pentax Lens Guide and Suggestions

I have placed an order for the K1 and will order lenses soon. I saw a guide on this forum for pentax lenses and if someone can link me to it I would appreciate the help.

OK, suggestions. I shoot 3 lenses on my full frame Canon and I will want to have comparable lenses for the new K1.

I understand that there are some new lenses coming for the K1 as well and I would wait for a newer lens. I have had mixed results with non-manufacturer lenses so I plan to stick with Pentax branded glass.

Canon 16-35 f2.8L II
Canon 24-105 is f4 L
Canon 70-200 is f2.8L II

What would be comparable in the Pentax glass?

Those sound good except the 28-105. I like a constant aperture.
