well, if you have the funds the pentax 16-50 and 50-135 are both pro-grade f2.8 lenses and would give you from 24-200 equivalent. If that's not long enough you could also consider the pentax 60-250 (90 to 330 equivalent) which is also considered excellent but is a f4 lens. If that's not fast enough then it would have to sigma or tamron lenses such as classic 70-200 2.8s.


Also consider the DA*200mm f2.8 to group up with the 16-50, and 50-135's.

that is the FF equivalent of a 24-75, 75-200 and 300 prime which is a classic combo.

I second the idea of getting the DA*200.  Its a great lens, but so is the DA*300 and the DA*60-250 even though they are f4, with the high iso capabilities of the k-5 shooting at f4 is not a problem.
