Tele Zoom Comparative IQ Question

Besides the obvious focal length disparity, can anyone having experience with both the SMC F 70-210 & DA 55-300 lenses comment on their comparative IQ & other qualities?

Did you read the user reviews in the lens database?

Yes, but it doesn't give me the comparative info I'm seeking. I currently own the SMC F 70-210. I'm quite happy with this sleeper, but am wondering if it would be worth it to "upgrade?" to the 55-100. The extra reach isn't really that important to me. I'm mainly concerned with IQ comparisons.

You're probably not going to get better iq out of the da if that's all you're after.

That's about what I figured..... frees me up to consider another type of lens.
