A fully sorted 16-50 is all that you'll ever need. Post new-SDM motor my 16-50 is like a new lens...definitely has some va va voom....You might end up with a Sigma that is inferior if you have one that isn't entirely sharp...

I agree ... after trying three 16-50's, which were frustratingly slow on my K5, I recently came across one s/h that had a new motor fitted. So different - especially on my K30 which has quicker AF anyway, and has replaced my K5. Its easily fast enough for most subjects and produces such great IQ compared with many alternatives.
