No problem Andrew, I suspect the difference would have been even greater at f5.6, unfortunately I didn't test that before selling my 55-300.

The other thing that is also noticeable with a pro grade lens is that the perceived dof is greater which is understandable as the resolution has stepped up a notch.

Mind if one is printing at 6x4 the difference in these 2 lenses may not be noticeable at all because of the down sampling taking place. It all comes down to the final output required by the individual.
