Well I have both now so ill be testing then extensively ... It will come down to:

-- hide signature --

how much real world reach will I lose?

--af speed/tracking

---center and off center sharpness

I know the 28-300 will not be good.. But how close can it come?

I have the 70-300mm VR also, so I'll be testing the 28-300mm pretty heavily against it. If the 28-300mm is somewhere in the ballpark of the 70-300mm VR, the 70-300mm Vr will be sold : )

If i were you, I wouldn't buy the 28-300 to replace the 70-300.
