Another option is the Pentax 18-250 mm to substitute for both lenses. It's way sharper than any kit lens, and you will have one lens to cover most any situation. Now that Tamron has replaced the 18-250 (essentially the same as the Pentax version) with the 18-270 you can sometimes find good deals on on the older model. I do think the Pentax version has better flare resistance, but otherwise they're the same lens.

The 18-250 way sharper than any kit lenses? Most call it a tossup with respect the 18-55 or 50-200, but the 55-300 is almost universally considered to be sharper than the 18-250.
