Exactly what it say, no exif.

Not wanting to start a fire fight but a few observations on this thread.

1 All full res images posted here from the 55-300 look like a cheap consumer zoom, poor optical correction and barrel distortion evident, Just like a tarmon 70-300 or a Sigma 70-300 Apo or a Tamron 18-250 or the Pentax 80-320 or any other 'run of the mill' cheap optic.

It may have some endearing qualifies above some of the above mentioned lens but it really apples to apples optically.

2 all the 'what a great lens 'posts images are postage stamp where quite frankly a 2001 P&S could look good.

3 to me the very fact all these beautiful colorful images are posted low res with additional sharpening prove the 'run of the mill' accusation more than anything anyone could say.

And as they say to prove the point

a 2001 P&S 2mpixel image

DA40 limited what a waste of money a plastic lens p&s has it beaten ...........not
