The image quality on the Sigma will most likely be better than the 55-300, especially since you stop down the Sigma anyway.  However, it is obviously much larger... if you don't bring it, well, a picture with a 55-300 is going to be better than no picture, any day!

Or you can rent one of the exotic telephotos and see what a *really* big lens feels like, and then the Sigma will feel positively minute.

Cheers
