So long as you use APS-C, I would still recommend the Pentax 16~85mm. Excellent range of focal lengths for many, many photo situations, and about as good a zoom for IQ as there is in K-mount. 27 reviewers rate it 9.11 out of ten (see reviews). The only Pentax zooms I see that are rated higher are the 10~20mm (9.22) but that would not be suitable for portraiture nor as versatile for candid street photography, and the 17~70mm f2.8 (9.58), which also is less versatile and much more expensive. I'm not considering the big zooms, 70~200mm, 60~250mm and 150~450mm, none of which is really suited to the type of photography you are doing and foresee doing. If you are seriously thinking of going to full frame, it's a whole different story.

You might also consider a 16~85mm, a really outstanding zoom, better than anything you have, with a wider range that would give you significantly more at the WA end and cover the useful focal lengths for portraiture.
