I've said it before, but it bears an occasional repeating:

A lens is not something you hang on the front of your camera; a camera is something you hang on the back of your lens.

I own K10D and have following lenses and accessories:
Pentax 18-55mm, Pentax 28-105mm, Sigma 17-70mm and Sigma 70-300mm lens, also own AF360 flash. Trying to decide if I want to just add Sigma 10-20mm lens or go for the Pentax K20D!! With K7 now doubt K20D will come down in price. What should I do...New K20D or just add Sigma 10-20mm lens to collection. Thanks
I think you should do what I did, concentrate on the glass and worry about a new body down the line.

I would buy the lens, and buy the k-7 when the price comes down (I am doing the same sort of thing) on the assumption you have a need for the wide angle - lanscape or whatever.
Get another lens or two, and the K-7 in the future.
That's what I plan to do, anyway...

You can still add a superwide, fast prime and macro lens yet, The body can wait

If you've a need for a superwide, get it. A new body cannot satisfy that need.

A new body will increase your capabilities at the margins, but there's no way it'll allow you to take 10mm wide angle shots without a 10mm lens.
