I dunno, I've used the "other" guys stuff before... I always found the DA*300mm sharpness to be more than a match for the other 300mm F4 lenses of similar vintage.

Perhaps that is the issue if the only option is a lens design from over 13 years ago mounted on new camera with a modern sensor and is being compared to the performance of recently designed lenses on cameras also with current sensors. While a user may be impressed with this lens, the reviewers are maybe accustomed to a different level of performance, not impressed with competitive in 2008.
