Can you guys suggest me the best wide angle lens for my Pentax K-5.

Depending on how wide and what you want to spend. I personally own 2 wide angle lenses. My workhorse that I think is FANTASTIC is the DA* 16-50mm f/2.8. One of the two lenses on my camera the most. The other is its bigbrother the DA* 50-135mm f/2.8. The other wide angle I own is the Sigma 10-20mm. Doesn't get used nearly as much because of the variable aperture and redundancy but when I want REALLY wide the 10mm end of this lens comes in handy!

I used a Sigma 10-20mm lens on my Dartmouth holiday last week; you should see a few shots in my photostream in the Dartmouth 2011 set to give you an idea.

1. Pentax DA 15mm f/4 Limited, really compact, built-in lens hood.
2. Pentax DA 10-17 fisheye zoom, not so fishy at 17mm but more fishy and 180 degrees diagonal at 10mm, built-in lens hood.

3. Have used Pentax DA 12-24, awesome lens but rather big and heavy with a huge lens hood.

I have the 18-135mm lens, do you suggest to sell it and buy the 16-50mm DA*?

I use Samyang 8mm Fisheye manual lens and I like it.
