I wonder that myself. I have not experienced the distortion on Ozdean's shots before.

My take on the DA* is that the whole picture is sharper, the centre by a bit and the borders by a lot, when compared to a good copy of 55-300 that also perhaps seems to matter which camera it's on. When photographing birds, usually the centre is all we see, as in above shots and gives one a rosy view of the 55-300, which is perhaps my main use for it also......
