What Lens Should I Buy With the Nikon D80?

I am leaning strongly toward the Nikon D80 as my first DSLR. The problem I'm faced with is deciding what lens to get. The camera will be used mainly for eBay and vacation/family photos, with some portraits as well. As this is my first DSLR, I want to start off with just one lens, with a price of less than around $400. I'd go with the 18-135mm kit lens without hesitation, if only I could be sure the maximum aperture of f3.5 will be enough to handle lower-light indoor shots. What is a better all-purpose lens--the 18-135mm zoom, 18-55mm zoom, or a 30mm F1.4?
