It seems to me that you don't fully understand the relationships between image resolution, image size, screen resolution, screen size and pixel density.

In any event, there's overwhelming testimony by any number of reputable online review sites as well as 55-300 owners that underscore the value of the 55-300 and remove it from the "run-of-the-mill category."

I, for one, would never waste my time defending a lens that's universally acknowledged as "poor," nor would anyone else in their right minds.

It's safe to say that the 55-300 represents excellent value and that some samples of this lens are not up to par.
