It's still an improvement vs. FA* 300 f/4.5 on K10D. Expect very similar results from the Canon and Nikon equivalents on higher pixel-pitch cameras, in future reviews.
If you calculate a conversion factor comparing MTF on the k-5 to the k-10 [should be close to 1.12 by my quick figuring], then the DA300 is sharper than the FA300, not by a lot, but enough to matter in critical situations.

These shots were taken wide open with my DA* 300mm, hand held and are pretty tight crops.
