Good value lens for A6000?

One of my nephews (age 17) will get an A6000 body for christmas from his parents. I am now checking for a good, future proof, lens which is within the (restricted) budget (I am a MFT user, so not very familiar with Sony lens choices). In the buying guide here I found the Sony E 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS which looks to be a very good choice, but with approx. 500 Euro it is out of scope. The Sony E 16-50mm 3.5-5.6 OSS PZ standard lens with approx. 150 Euro may fit the budget, but I read in several review that the optics is mediocre.

He says that his focus will be on video, but I think that a dedicated video lens will not be within budget nor will it be useful for a young beginner...

Any recommendations from Sony experts?

Thank you, Wolfgang
