Since he already got the K3 he can wait on a wide angle, and if he can get an 8-16 that will work awesomely.

What you can do is set up a couple keywords in the Marketplace to get a feel for what used copies sell for. Keywords like "12-24" and "8-16" or "15mm" will give you emails when these show up. It's terrible for LBA but great for getting a feel for prices.
Why not the Tamron 10-24 or sigma 10-20..... I think both have scored significantly better in reviews .... There is even a sigma 10-20 section with this very forum.

Just giving examples of keywords - I haven't researched any of these lenses - though that short zoom length seems useful.

Not necessarily. The Pentax 12-24 can be had for around $US550 (about 400 euro) secondhand, sometimes less. (Look at recent sales in the marketplace here.) That would leave 500 euro in the budget for the camera - easily enough for a K-30, if not a K-5. That would be a better distribution of the budget than compromising on the lens, IMO.
Alright, my math must've been bad I'd say you're right, unless he needs the 10mm range, there are very little that this the DA 12-24 lens can't do.
