Borderline Garbage!?

My 55-300 has been a fine lens, and I would disagree with the statement that it is borderline garbage.  Even though I wish that I would have purchased the 70-300 in lieu of the 55-300 due to its better AF, and since it is an FX lens, I believe that one can get great shots with the 55-300.  Considering the cost, it is a great value.

If I make up my mind to stick with Nikon, I would love to purchase the 300 mm/4.0, which should make it easier than either one of the zooms to get good shots.

Here are a few shots taken with my 55-300:
