Have both and am still deciding which to keep...

Tests so far (I've had the 75-300 a few weeks only) have been inconclusive, also because of the bad weather. If anything, the 75-300 doesn't do worse in darker conditions.

SIze & weight is in favour of the 75-300, though not as much as I'd hoped.

Handling on the 75-300 is far better: it zooms more smoothly & with a shorter excursion. Overall it's nicer to hold and use.

Unless I'm unplesently surprised when the sun comes out, I'll probably keep the 75-300 for the above reasons.
