The 16-45 looks great but I was hoping for something a little more usable in lower light so it may be held back by F4; which brings me to the Tamron or the Sigma. The Tamron seem to have the edge on IQ, from what I read, and is a fair bit cheaper but I will try before I buy.

I would not worry too much about f/4 versus f/3.5; f/4 versus f/2.8 (as in the new Sigma 17-70 Contemporary) is another story; but don't forget that the Sigma 17-70 Contemporary is a variable aperture so at the long end it's f/4.
Pentax K10D + Vivitar 55/2.8 macro + Super Takumar 55/1.8 + SuperMultiCoated Takumar 85/1.8 + SuperMultiCoated Takumar 135/3.5 + SuperMultiCoated Takumar 200/4 + Super Takumar 300/4
Pentax K100D + DA18-55ALII + DA55-300
Pentax K5 + FA31Ltd + M50/1.7 + DFA100WR + M120/2.8 (+ DA18-55WR at occasion)
