FOr the next 1.5 hours you can get the lens - BNIB from Amazon - for $289 and then get $100 back from Tamron making a brand new, 6 year warranty, 18-200 cost $189. Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro Zoom Lens for Pentax Digital SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo

The FA 50/1.4 that climit mentioned along with the DA 15 limited would make a nice, pretty affordable pair to start with.

I already have many pentax and third party lenses but the normal Angle (50mm on Fullframe= ca. 30-35 on APS-C) was still missing - till now. 3 days my new 35/2.4 arrived and what can i say: its cheap, its lightweight - its plastic, but (imho) its fantastic! Very good sharpness, open a few CAs and a very nice bokeh for round about 200,- EUR, in my eyes the FA50/1.7 killer, which focal lenght is a bit too long for me on aps-c.

For Portraits or Reportage its a good choice i think. Together with the k-x or the k200 its a very lightweight combination.
