I've just upgraded to the PLM version from my 12 year old screw driver version - wow! Last night's moon from Eastern Oregon through some smoky haze - great detail for a little zoom.

Nice shot! Aside from the much quicker auto-focus how does the PLM version compare to the older DA 55-300 HD version ?

My initial impression is that it is just generally better - sharper at the long end, sharper in the corners, and perhaps more micro contrast. Of course, how much better is the real question. Since  a) I've only had it a short while so haven't used it a lot and b) I haven't done a straight up comparison with the original version, I've only my initial impressions which are all good.
