Not having a 75-300mm to compare with, I can only see what I can from the 100-300mm that I have compared to the a few legacy lenses and the Oly 50-200mm.

Doing aircraft spotting your going to be using it at the 300mm side most often which means to get the most out of the lens f8-f11 is going to be your optimum apertures.  F5.6 is ok but certainly not as good as f8-f11 with f11 being its peak before diffraction takes a hold thereafter.

I have read that the 75-300mm is better wide open, but again its just what I have read and from a few graphs and pics I have seen.
