First time DSLR buyer - a few questions...

I am looking to buy the Pentax K5 IIs with the 31mm limited prime lens. I need another zoom lens that will cover the rest for me until I can afford to start collecting more lenses. I have been looking at the obvious 18-135mm, but read some bad reviews about it. So is there an alternative? Or would it be better for me to buy the 70mm limited prime in addition to the 31mm?

I think that I am right in thinking that there isn't a better camera out there in the same price range. I have been looking at the sample picture on here comparing it side by side with several hugher priced DSLR's some full frame, and I think it has the best detail. I have only seen sample pictures online that I like better taken with the Hasselblad H4D-40... and that is for sure out of my reach!
Any and all suggestions are welcome!
