I did a set of indoor tests comparing the new Bigmos to the old DA 55-300. I managed a distance of 17 feet (5m) to my favorite test target, a dollar bill. I used a tripod, remote trigger with 3 second delay, no SR, and live view autofocus. Here's a grid of results:

FWIW: Most of the Sigma's with HSM do not focus worth a damn using Live View Autofocus. I would do that test again using PDAF.

If the problem was focus, it would have sharpened when stopped down.
