If you don't want to spend a lot of money on lenses, you could scour the used lens market on craigslist, that's how I bought most of my lenses.  Pentax has many manual focus fast primes that are affordable.

I think Pentax's strength lies in its well featured bodies that has shake reduction built in.  So F2.8 may be fast enough given in-body SR.  For any system, you may also think about investing in a flash to bounce off of ceilings and walls to give you some decent diffused light instead of investing in really expensive fast lenses.
