55-300 Lens; PLM Version vs. the non-PLM Version
1

Knowledgeable Group;

I have the 55-300 lens.  It works well for a travel telephoto but it is slow to focus and sometimes doesn't focus well. Is the newer PLM version that much better?   Adorama currently has a good deal on the newer PLM version as part of their "Cyber week" deals.  If you have experience using both versions of this lens, please advise.  Thanks,
