Photozones numbers! They come close in the middle; scaling from the K10D to K5 test cameras. DXO also shows the same. The center/middlish area is great the deeper corners fade, but are still OK.

To be soft at 300mm you have to have a not normal copy. A copy that is within normal is pretty good. After all PopPhoto, Photozine, Photozone, DXO all show the same basic trait at 300mm f/5.8, they really do!
