For my APS-C Canon, and for practical/portability reasons, I mostly travel with this (zoom) range: (Usage percentage 1 (60%) -> 2 (40%) -> 3 (5%) -> Would like to have other lens 5% )
1. Tokina AT-X_116 Pro_DX
2. Canon EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 USM IS
3. Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 USM IS (or EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L IS)

Within the Pentax lens range - although not as "fast", optically - I've been looking to build a system based upon these:

1. smc PENTAX DA 12-24mm F4.0 ED AL (IF) -> Wider to 10mm preferred - no fisheye, please

2. smc PENTAX DA 17-70mm F4 AL (IF) SDM -> Better feedback than smc PENTAX DA Star 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM...

3. smc PENTAX DA Star 60-250mm F4 ED (IF) SDM -> though a little to heavy for my taste...

It is a shame that Tokina 11-16mm still doesn't support Pentax mount (or Pentax's version of the lens). Wonder if that will happen.

... And the same goes for all their range, up-coming lens like the 16-28 f2,8 included.
