Kit lens(es): 18-55/18-135/18-250/50-200/55-300

Friend of mine just got a K-r and needs an 18-55 and a 50-200/55-300mm to round it up. Otherwise, an all-rounder 18-250mm or 18-135mm would probably work too.

She's a new Pentax user, so preferably a lens kept in better condition and all that jazz so that she gets a good first impression of Pentax.

Her budget's fairly low, otherwise I might have asked her to get other lenses (28-75 f2.8 anyone?)

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the great response! I received quite a few offers for the 18-135 and 18-250mm. After pitching it to her she seems more interested in an 18-55 and 50-200/55-300 combo for cost reasons.

Which I haven't received any responses/offers yet. She definitely wants something 18-ish though, as she wants a wide angle to shoot landscapes.
