Then find a Sigma 100-300/4 in PK mount if you want the best of both worlds, primes and zooms.  No zoom with a ratio of 4x or more can equal a prime or a 3x and lower zoom lens. And I include the Canon 100-400/4.5-5.6 L IS in that list also. It can't match the Sigma 100-300 in the Sigma's range anywhere although at 200mm they are close.

I had a 55-300 for awhile. I found that the Sigma 100-300/4 with a good TC was sharper than the 55-300 without one.
