I just bought a K 5

Actually I bought 2. First is for my friend, then I liked it so much I ended by buying one for myself.
I bought the 16 - 50mm DA* limited. Now I am looking for some primes!

Welcome, good to have you hear.

You are off to a good start! YOu will have a hard time finding primes that perform as good as the DA16-50. I would start by an F/FA/DA 50mm f/1.7 or f/1.4 or FA43!
DA70 or FA77 should be a good complement to the DA16-50 too.
