Buying a K5/18-55 for travel

We've taken to European travel each November, so I wanted a weather-resistant system and the K5/18-55 fits the bill. I have looked at some alternative WR lenses but the added weight and cost have put me back to the 18-55. I'm also looking at the 77mm limited.

I've had an SLR since about 1971 and if I remember correctly it was a Konica Autoreflex. Even put a b&w darkroom in my bathroom at one point.
