Is anyone else using them on a daily basis and happy with them?
I'm very happy with them, for the price the quality is very good. I'd found that the 18-55 works better without a UV-type filter, even a good one, stuck on the front.

Some examples :

50-200mm : Flickr: Search kh1234567890's photostream

Flickr has some interesting notion of which shots are interesting
If you want to pixel-peep then the originals should be visible.

They seem to be water resistant - I've had a few soakings in a rainstorm with no ill effect. Then again, with a 100 lens you tend to worry less about killing it through abuse.

...I like the 50-200 so much I sold my DA 55-300...

The pair together was about 300 bucks. Is there any manufacturer who offers quality kit weather sealed lenses at such a low price?
Same here, I sold my DA 55-300 in favor of the 50-200 also. Considering the size and weight of the 55-300 and the incremental difference in performance, it wasn't something I wanted in my bag. It takes more effort and skill to bring the potential out of the entry kit lenses, but they are quite capable in the right hands.
