i have the Canon 70-300mm IS (not the L one) and it's good at 300mm but not as good as a Prime 300mm lens, i did own the FA*300mm/4.5 in the past and the FA*300mm/4.5 was better than what i get from my Canon 70-300mm IS which is probably equal to the Pentax 55-300mm.

In other words, you're guessing?

Not guessing that much, the DA55-300mm is a consumer zoom lens and the DA*300mm/4 is a Pro prime lens, so there is no way a consumer zoom will equal a Prime 300mm at it's 300mm settings from my experience and the DA*300mm/4 is said to be a little sharper than my FA*300mm/4.5 i had before, which was quite a sharp lens.
