AF 35mm body for Tamron lens

Greetings all! I've got a Tamron 28-75/2.8 lens that I used to use with my K10D. Having sold that body, I'm looking for an autofocus 35mm body to use with it. Any recommendations?

The camera body needs to be AF & not MF only. While the lens will MF, there is so much play in the focusing ring as to make it a pain to use. I've also got a Sigma 74-200mm (MF) that will be used with this body and I've also got a collection of M42 glass that I might occasionally use with an adapter. Don't know a lot about the Pentax autofocus bodies, so any advice would be appreciated. Don't have a great deal of money to spend, either, so please take that into account.

I'd take a look at the PZ-1/p series bodies (and not just because I have several extra ones I plan to sell ). They're pretty well featured for the money ($75-125) and I've used my with the Tamron 28-75 and it's a nice combo. Don't know how well it works or doesn't work with M42 lenses as I've never tried, so hopefully someone else can answer that for you.

I'd suggest the PZ-1p too. I find that it feels quite a bit like the K10d.
