Correction... Sigma, not Tamron. My mistake and I can't figure out how to edit my post.

Go with the Pentax.. nice colors and very much Pentax IQ you want.

Sigma is also highly rated but I feel colors are bit muted and on the cooler side

However, I would recommend the Tamron 17-50/2.8 which is really good, very much Pentax like colors and Plus it is f2.8 so very good indoors as well
