A good $700 kit

Part of the enjoyment of this great hobby is putting a kit of lenses together. I've been at this for about 10 months now and am just starting to learn my K10D. I'm still a pretty bad photographer but am getting a great deal of pleasure out of it. A good (IMO) low cost kit based on bayonet mount lenses follows. Seeing a list from some of you that prefer M42 lenses would be fun. My list should cost a little less than $700 if you are a smart shopper.
1) Kit lens
2) A50mm f1,7 or K or M 50MM f1.4. Actually, any 50mm.
3) A or F 70-210mm f4
4) K or M 28mm f3.5
5) K35mm f3.5
6) A 35-105mm f4
7) Zenitar K16mm f2.8
8)300mm???? haven't figured this one out yet. Cost?

Kits will of course be different based on your style, and it would be interesting to see what your low cost kit would look like.
