55-300vr vs 70-300vr @D90

Hi.
This may not be new but I want to upgrade my Sigma 100-300 f4.5-6.7 (no focus motor no OS)
Then most obvious choice is 55-300VR DX af-s at 265u$ vs 70-300 VR (FX) @ 495u$ .. both local prices in american dollar.
I am not planing to move to FF in the near future. So the format diference does not matter to me.
What other diferences are important in favor of the FX version to justify the higher price.?.?
I come from a Panasonic FZ200 bridge superzoom so I miss long tele zoom and Optical stabilazation. I'll miss the fast f/2.8 in this pany but I won't sell my car for a fast lens. (still)...I am enjoing the almost 2stops higher (usable) ISO in the D90 so..
I do childs and dogs. Some birds too. The former needs fast focusing...
Thanks for the advices
