I prefer the shots from the Voigtlander. However the 55-300 is known to be a little soft at the long end, why not try the same shot at 260mm (where it's known to be much sharper - when I use this lense I always dial it back a touch to 250-260 since if you blow those up they are still sharper than shots taken at 300) ?

I recently bought the DA*300, cropped shots from that - to what is effective 500mm - easily out-resolve shots from my Tarmon BB 500 reflex (and I do like that lense - amazing for the money). But then look at the price difference, I'd be distraught if it couldn't !

LOL - exactly.

Have you done the same comparison, but using the DA 55-300 instead of the DA*?
