DA 18-135 WR

DA 55-300

Asking whether you should get the 18-55 kit lens or the $1000+ 16-50 DA* reveals that neither cost nor absolute image quality is a prime concern for you. And that is great.

Therefore you can afford the 18-135 and the 55-300 is quite reasonably priced. But more important these two lens conform to the so-called "golden rule of Pentax lens choosing"...

"When in doubt, get the more compact and lightweight lens."
