So no wide angle primes ?

8-30 mm ?

If you don't count the AF-S 24mm f1.4 or the AF-S 28mm f1.8. Pentax has the 14mm f2.8, 15mm f4, and 21mm f3.2, but we don't have the long telephotos of the Nikon system. Wide or long, you pick which is of more importance to you to have a prime for.

If your shooting aps-c and primes I'd think 10-20 a critical General purpose range

otherwise you'll be shooting like 35-70 on FF.

I don't shoot wide primes but use the 16-20 region extensively.

Plenty of excellent Nikon zooms in the ultrawide or wide range that are faster than the Pentax primes in the range. If the exact focal length you want is not covered by Nikon lenses, then you know the range is covered by Sigma, Tokina, and Tamron. If you want big and excellent the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8. the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8, or smaller and still excellent, the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, lots of options already and we haven't even started to look at the 16/17-35mm zooms available for Nikon.

Thank you
