If you buy the 55-300 I fear it will only be a stop gap till you get the real thing for your Q

Buy once first time is my advice , but then I can't see what strains are on your disposable income.

Don't worry, I'm not going to spend money on a 55-300, it's the lens I already have. In fact, it's old enough and heavily used enough that it's starting to wear out mechanically. The extending part is wobblier than it once was, and the focus mechanism occasionally jams.

In that case I'd stick with it. As it seems with your short term plans it is probably the better solution.

As they say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
