I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question? Did you mean: What lens is mounted on K20D?

It could be the 16-45, that's a lot beefier than the 18-55 kit lens.

I believe that K20D actually has the DA 17-70/4 SDM mounted, though it is very close in size to the DA 16-45/4. The giveaway is the orange 'SDM' text just under the 'P' in the flash housing. The other giveaway is the focus distance scale. The 16-45 has a longer focus path that includes a brownish stripe for the very close focus distances.

The 17-70/4 is another excellent lens; so far it appears to match the 16-45/4 very well in the overlapping focal length range.
