5Ds + 300 F4 IS sharpness

Hello

I recently got a used 300mm F4 Is lens, and I'm a bit confused with the results.

The only negative so far is the mediocre IS, but the IQ and the closeup ability is pretty good.

The 300mm is rated very low by DXO, and is generally considered a bit of a "meh" lens, but when i view the images at 100% the sharpness seems to be reasonable.

Please give me some feedback if this is good performance, or I should just sell this and buy something like the new 70-300 nano usm.

Thanks
