Ordering a new K-5 IIs

I am asking for some lens buying advice.
First, some background:
I am retired and currently use a Pana LX3 (great little camera). I also use my older Pentax MX with my Pentax 40-80 or Soligor 80-200 lenses.
I shoot landscape. Vacations, street vendors, and family holidays.
Q: Will I need one or two lenses for my new K-5 IIs? What is suggested? I see a good write-up on the Tamron 18-270; then there are the DA*16-50/2.8 ($749) and DA*50-135/2.8 ($749). Also the Pentax 18-135, 18-55, and 150-200 (WRs).
What a decision!
Any help for me?
