I had the 80-320mm for a while, not a bad lens, actually almost on par with the 55-300mm except for wide open performance at the long end. It's barely usable there unless stopped down to f/11 (!). A 100-300mm zoom is only a 3x zoom (vs 4x for the 80-320mm) so the odds may be better in its favor but I have no experience with this (these? as it seems there are a few variants) lens. The thing I didn't like either about the 80-320mm was the rotating front element and the absence of a hood (but you can screw one with a 58mm thread).
