Welcome Will. Congratulations on your newborn and your new K-50. I'd also recommend the DA 50mm f1.8. It's a very affordable lens that punches well above its price in terms of image quality. I took pictures with it in low ambient light last Christmas and was very pleased with them. It also does subject isolation - having the subject in focus and the background out of focus - well, which can be nice for people pictures.

The aperture block issue would not appear from examining the camera visually. You would have to take pictures - with a lens on, to see any evidence of it if it exists in your camera.
