What type of photography are you doing? What budget do you have?

If you still haven't decided, go for a midrange zoom (like the kit lens), and see what your needs are from then on.

Have a look at the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 or you can wait around for the Pentax 17-70mm f/4.

Get the Pentax DA 16-45mm. It's much better than the kit lens, it's very sharp with excellent color and contrast.
