Default k-x with 55mm kit Sigma 18-200mm lens or 18-55/55-300mm kit lens?

From a practical standpoint the Sigma is much more convenient as I would only need one lens most of the time outdoors (of course less telephoto than the kit). The 55mm kit and the Sigma would be $50 more than the dual lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-300mm lenses. Anyone have any thoughts?

spend the money and get the pentax 55-300. it is a much better lens option package with 2. It is better then the sigma 18-250, as a megazoom lens has more distortions. But it is convenient
