I've got a quick question about 100-300 APO D: if your copy didn't have persistent tint issue, would you keep it over 55-300?

Thank you.

Simple answer - yes...  I like the wider range and quieter focus for video.  Optical quality in my eyes was similar which is to say very good in this price range.  The Minolta is a very good lens in its own rite, but the Sony is just better in my eyes for my purpose.
