Need at least 135 f/2

A 30 m distance requires a minimum of 135 mm, preferably at f/2 or f/2.8.

"Pretty wide" can mean a lot of things.  What's the angle-of-view that you need?  For landscapes that are distant, a telephoto lens with a focal length of 100 mm is a wide-angle.

Buying a camera kit because of a budget can lead to buying the wrong thing, because the bias is towards an arbitrary limit instead of the physical properties and focusing accuracy of the lenses.
