If you plan to stay with APSC, the DA 50-135 is far more useful than the 24-70 in my opinion.

I own the fa31 and 35. Both are very good. Neither will let you down. The 77 also is great. But one small complaint about all of these is the lack of quickshift. If that's something you regularly use it won't be possible with those lenses.

I hope I'm not too late.

In your price range or close:

Da 12-24 f4 great ultra wide zoom
Da 16-85 great weather resistant all around lens.
Da 55 f1.4 better performing than the fa 50, but very duplicative of your current gear
Da 70 very sharp, compact, lovely portrait lens on apsc. Essentially fill frame coverage (corners may be so so on full frame).
Da 15 lovely lens,flare resistant, jewel ultra wide
Fa 43... Superb rendering, but overlaps a lot you already own.
Da 35 f2.8. Good normal lens. Also lovely macro for still objects.
Da 21 great street lens.
Dfa 100 can be useful portrait lens but can be too long for some people on apsc. Better coffee for macros of creepy crawled bugs than shorter lenses.
Da 40 tighter street option to close to existing lenses. Nice lens.
Da10-17 fun lens by all reports. Superb wide wide coverage. Fishy at widest end.
Da 18-135 super fun walk about lens. Not as wide... But much longer than 16-85.
Fa 35 f2, fully full frame nice fast normal on the k-5.
Dfa 50 see dfa 100 just shorter.
Da 40xs... See da 40, stealth on street is even better
Da 35 f2.4 slower and more plastic feeling than fa 35.

The 20-40 is my recommendation... If you jumped before the price went back up. Current price is nearly $800.
