Has anybody made any direct comparisons between the two?

here is relevant info based on field testing;

I doubt that the review is biased, as both lenses reviewed are from the same manufacturer.

Further:

N-Photo mag Jul 2012 lab MTF scores the 150-500mm as follows;

Wide: 2299

Mid: 2254

Long: 1630

50-500mm scores;

Wide: 1855

Mid: 1805

Long: 1540

Enjoy.
