What Low Cost IP Cameras Hold Up The Best In The Field?

I am in the process of starting up an IP video product offering for my company. I was one of two sales engineer for a security integrator, who did 6 million in CCTV last year, so I have designed a fair amount of systems. We dealt mainly with Axis, Sony, and Exacq Vision. I am a big fan of Exacq, and Axis, but in my location, I know we won't sell much Axis just because of the price point and lack of large opportunities and deep customer pockets. I have to compete against some other tech companies, and a few small security companies.

I have already ruled out Arecont Vision, I have dealt with those things enough in my career to realize they won't be a good fit for this company. I am leaning towards Hikvision and Samsung, and I have seen the tests here on IPVM, and see they are decent, but I would like to hear from the installers out there, how are they to install, how do they hold up in rain and snow? Has anyone used their autofocus cameras? I have had some experience with Vivotek as well, we used them at the old company, and I am not ruling those out either they worked well, but I would like to see what else is out there, and what others have found success with in similar market conditions.
