Bought the DA* 16~50/2.8 in 2009. So far no issues in admittedly light use.

Had my 50-135 over 3 years. It has been obstreperous perhaps 3 times (but, interestingly, not in the last year) Works like a charm.
Have had the 16-50 over 2 years. It died once, and was fixed under warranty.
I am very happy with them both. Real workhorses.

Double-word score for obstreperous!

I've had my 16-50 for about two years now, it has traveled around the world and been through sand, snow and rain without issues. I love this lens. I don't agree about the AF, it's pretty fast, at least a lot faster than the 50-135mm. I have to admit I'm a bit worried about the SDM, but I can pay for three repairs before it adds up to the price of the only equivalent lens, the 17-55 from Nikon.
