Best replacement kit lens for K-X

I was wondering what you guys think the best replacement kit lens for the K-x is. i'm looking for something similar to the Canon EF-s 17-85 mm f/4-5.6.

I vote for the DA 16-45mm, very useful and versatile, but cheap! ^___^

Yeah, that what I use! Get a good quality polarizer and you are set. The 16-45mm is an awesome lens!

If you're looking for soemthing with a range similar to the Canon 16-85, the obvious choices are the Pentax and Sigma 17-70's (both shorter but faster) or the Sigma 18-125.
