50mm+ zoom lenses

Hi guys, it's that time of year again and the double threat of a December baby + Christmas looms around the corner. Last year, I was able to get an excellent K20d from one of you guys for her and she loves it! I only got her a 50mm prime and a standard zoom, and she's been saying she'd like something a little longer. So, I've been looking for any sort of autofocus zoom of 50-200 or 50-300 or anything in that sort of range. I really also want to build a PC with her so she can do her own PP and learn all of those fun things, so depending on how much the lens costs I can probably build her a better computer or even try and get her a laptop or something.

I'm on a bit of a budget so I'm open to any sort of lens, even the DA kit lenses or the F if anyone has one floating around. I'm also open to any normal and long zoom pairs if you have any. I gave her a knock-around normal zoom as she has had a habit of breaking/losing things and I wanted to make sure she was responsible enough first before I gave her anything I'd be bothered with her losing... Thanks for the help guys!

I have a DAL 50-200 and Tamron 28-200 XR, both are in the lower price range of what you are looking for.
