Looks like my list needs updating again (sigh!). My kit is pretty much the way I want it, there's still a couple of accessories I'd like to have, but otherwise it's pretty complete.
Pentax ZX-M (don't know if it still works, hasn't been used in 4 years)
Pentax DA 10-17
Pentax DA 12-24
Pentax DA 18-55 (only used on the K100)
Pentax SMC 24mm 2.8
Pentax SMC-M 24-50mm f4 (a lousy lens, not as sharp as the kit lens, can't believe I haven't tossed it out yet)
Pentax SMC-M 50mm 1.4 (mostly used reversed for macros)
Pentax SMC-M 50mm 1.7
Pentax DA 50-200 (still broken, I need to toss it out. It's not worth repairing)
Pentax DA 55-300 (the replacement for the 50-200 and my newest lens)
Pentax 77 1.8 Limited
Kiron 80-200 f4 Macro (still has oil on aperture blades, too sentimental to part with it, should either get it fixed or toss)
Vivitar Series One 105mm 2.5 Macro
Pentax Takumar (Bayonet) 135mm 2.5
Pentax DA*200 f2.8
Pentax SMC-A*300 f4
Pentax case that came with the DS kit
small Tamrac holster case, for camera and one lens
Lowepro Orion 1 fanny pack
Tamrac 603 shoulder bag
Lowepro Slingshot 200 (I'm on my second one, wore out the first one by stuffing too much stuff in it and the zipper stitching gave out)
Kata 3N1-30 with the optional 3N1 Tripod Attachment
Gitzo 2541 tripod and Gitzo head, Really Right Stuff Quick release plate and L-Bracket
My accessory list includes things like a 77mm circular polarizer (with 2 step-up rings), the 12" silver/gold reflector, reversing ring to use the 50 in front of another lens, and I still have (and use) the extension tube that started out in life as a TC. I also have a number of extra Sandisk Ultra II cards which work well enough for me to not be thinking of upgrading them.
Things still on my want-list include a Hoya R72 IR filter and a couple of Plamps.

I've just looked back through the tread, I thought it interesting that there is a large number of members that have the 16-45(supposedly not a good lens), and only a few with the 16-50(supposedly a much better lens). Is the 16-45 not bad enough to discard and the 16-50 too much of a gamble to buy? Or is there not that much difference in the IQ?

Can't tell about the 16-50, other than the reputation it's got as a "if you get a good copy, but there have been several QC problems..."
My main complaint about the 16-45 is build quality, it feels very rattely and plastic compared to my other lenses. But IQ wise it is very good, it was introduced as the better (and more expensive) alternative to the original 18-55 kit lens.
Anyone got both?

I have some buddies I photograph with, both Canon , one has a Canon L 17-40 and he comments that he is quite impressed with the sharpness and colour rendition of the 16-45.
It also seems fairly rugged. I live in Western Canada...in the winter I'm out with it at temps around -25 C for about an hour or so at a time. No freeze up or any kind of malfunction.
I've never tried the Pentax 16-50 so don't know, but my 16-45 has 1000's of exposures...winter and summer...it works like a charm. Very happy with it.
If anyone wants to discard their 16-45..ship it to me and it will find a good home attached to my KM as the standard lens. But it will be worked hard.
