You post an image to prove a lens optical quality  560px × 393px  i.e slightly less than an old cathode ray television form the 60's and then question my understanding of resolution !!

My original is 1500 px wide, not 560

I'm left wondering what you think raises the Pentax out of Run of the mill ?

Color, contrast, sharpness, zoom range, price, weight, ease of use.

Can you justify double the price for the improved contrast to justify your 'value' claim?

Double the price of what? Don't understand.

By the way, I don't think anyone here is saying the 55-300 is the equal of the 300 f/4. How could it be?
