I agree with the DA 35 2.4 - I found it to be a better performer than the DA 50 1.8, although I like that lens as well.

I am also a big fan of the 16-45 f/4 - I still ask myself why I got rid of that lens - if you get a used one (less than $300), it's a bargain in my opinion.

Ok but that's almost 3x as much as the kit lens I recommended, the point is bang for the buck with this post :).

Finally, I would like to add the DA 40 XS as a bargain champion. In fact, I think this may be my favorite general purpose lens - the focal length is great, it's pretty bright, CA seems well controlled, and it's the only Pentax lens I have that will fit in my pocket.

Also higher priced than the items I mentioned most of the time.
