kit lens equivalents aviliable?

Are there lenses by Tamron and Sigma that have equivalent focal lengths to the 18-55 and 50-200 DA lenses by Pentax? But a bit faster? I keep seeing a few here and there but don't know if they can equal the quality of the Pentax kit lenses as they are. Anyone have some experience with this?

Sigma 17-70mm lens is a very nice replacement over the 18-55mm Pentax.
The 50-200mm DA is a pretty decent lens ... and for the price .... there isn't much that can surpass it (unless you start sending big $$$$)

There is a Sigma 18-50/2.8 and a Tamron 17-50/2.8, both of which are supposed to be nice lenses.
