I've recently switched to Nikon from Pentax. One thing I miss dearly is the DA* 50-135mm. I'm considering picking up a used Tokina 50-135 which should be optically the same as the Pentax, save for different coatings.

An alternative is the Sigma 50-150 f/2.8. From what I've seen, both it and the Tokina are good within the 80% of the focal range between wide and zoom, but both are a tad weak at their longest. And I think both are discontinued, if memory serves.
