DXO shows the DA55-300mm matching any lens in the large middle area in sharpness/contrast at 300mm. Its best output is 300mm f/5.8. per DXO. I admit DXO is not perfect.

This is proof that DXOMark is not perfect. There was a thread on the DXO measurements at Pentax Forums. No one thinks the DA 300mm is sharpest at f/5.8, it is an absurd finding. So are the mediocre results they measured on the DA*300. Their tests agree with no other reviews I've ever seen, and certainly not with users, which proves their results are bunk. That is the problem with reviewing a single lens copy.
