Which lens should I get with my 60d?

I'm going to buy the Canon 60d. Should I get the body packaged with kit lens (8-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS) or the body only and buy the 50mm f/1.8 II?

60d packaged with kit lens: $1256.
60d body-only, 50mm separate: $1056.
So aside from price, what do you recommend? I'll mostly be using it to shoot video and indoor, naturally-lit portraits. I'm leaning towards the 50mm because it's cheaper, and I don't feel like I'll miss out on the zoom offered by the kit lens.
What else would I give up, besides the ability to zoom without moving my feet, by going with the 50mm over the kit? What am I gaining?
