I think Roy has given you some good suggestions on the telephoto end. For the middle range I would recommend the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 though that might be too expensive for your budget. I would also recommend the Pentax auto focus 28-70mm f4. I used this lens for many years and it was a wonderful performer for the price; you can still find them new on ebay for $100US +/-.
