I do not have the DA* 300, but I do want one.  That said, I can't complain too much about what the 55-300 has provided at times.  Here is a screen capture of a shot taken at 300mm (hand held with my old K200D BTW) magnified to 1:1 on screen in Lightroom and uploaded at full screen resolution.  Looks quite sharp to me.  I wish I could always be this steady, BTW.

You lookin' at me?

Regards,

Daryl
