Wide-angle zoom lenses (16/17- ?? & up)

I'm looking for a higher quality "kit" lens than the Pentax 18-135mm. My camera and kit lens (K-5IIs & 18-135 WR) was stolen, so I'm having to replace my kit.
I was advised to go for a faster/wider lens, like the 17-50/17-70, so I'm looking for something in that line. Another possibility is the 16-85, but from the prices I've seen, it's a little on the pricey side.

So, anyone have anything like that sitting around that they'll let me have for a competitive price? I'd like to say my budget is $200, but I don't know if that's even reasonable. However, when your camera is gone, and you have to replace it, obviously you're looking for a pretty good deal.

Thanks!

Thanks, but I'm afraid to ask how much more than $200 it would be...

Great! Please do send pics if you get the chance. Like I said, I'd like to have the long end at 70mm, but if that's getting too expensive, then I might just have to settle for what I can afford...

Thank you, but I'm looking for something wider if possible, than my original 18-135. Also, 35mm on the long end isn't really long enough, ideally I'd like at least 70mm on the long end.

Just curious how much would you be asking for that 16-50?
