New Pentax owner - lens help

Howdy all,

Quite bizarrely, I'm about to become a Pentax K-70 owner for very good reasons; I've managed to pick one up new from Amazon for a properly bonkers £159.10, and by all accounts the weather sealing is immense - I'm primarily a wedding photographer, and it's going to be the "It's absolutely chucking it down, and I don't want to get the Sony's drenched" camera.

So I'm in the market for a lens, but it's a bit of a minefield. Criteria is;

  • Preference for prime on depth of field
  • Focal length; FF equivalent 30-45mm (40mm to match the Batis would be immense)
  • Snappy auto focus
  • Aperture of around f2
  • Weather sealed would be a bonus (based on when it'll be used)
  • Picked up cheap on the used market

Any suggestions..?
