You implied somewhere that cash is a concern, so get the 55-300 for now. Get the DA*300 later, or maybe the DA 100ish-400ish in the roadmap. A 55-300 is still a nice lens to have, and is a great alternative to the DA*300 in certain scenarios; travel light, need wider angles, won't be cropping heavily, or DA*300 to expensive to risk.

If you get a 55-300, get the DA, not the DA L. Quick-shift is an advantage for this lens in particular, because it hunts more than most.
