It's amazing how truly difficult it is to find an affordable lens that improves on the 55-300. At this point, I guess my only remaining option if I want to stay within a normal human sized budget is DA*300 + TC, but even that adds up to about double the cost of the Bigmos.

The older F*FA*300/4.5 with and without very decent $99 Vivitar Series-1 AF 1.4x TC is worth to consider too, and the combo is cheaper
