QUIETEST kit lens replacement?

Of course, IQ is a priority, but I'd like to ask a very specific question:

Which is the quietest kit lens replacement?

I love the Pentax look, but am getting tired of the WHZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ WHZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ WHZZ WHZ

Do you want a zoom or a prime? If you want a zoom, I would think the DA17-70 would be the cheapest kit lens replacement, as it has an SDM motor.

Or the Sigma 17-70 with HSM.

Or the 16-50 is another alternative.
