I would get the 18-135. As noted above it is expensive to buy alone but the da or dal 55-300 can be gotten quite reasonably.

My wife has been using the kit lens on her k-x for some time, I bought her the 18-135 and she asked me why I didn't do it a long time ago. The difference in picture quality was clearly visible to her and she is definitely not a pixel peeper. And that does not even take into consideration the longer range or the WR.

The kit lenses don't come with the front lens petal hoods, and the 55-300mm does really need one, so keep that in mind.
Mine did.

I bought the K-30 kit here in Japan, so maybe it wasn't included because of that. Where did you purchase your kit?

Sorry, i think i was confused. I bought mine with the 18-55mm WR which i realise is different from the standard kit lens. The Wr lens comes with a hood.
