Whats the Difference between the 50-135 vs the 50-200 or 55-300
in terms of Bokeh / OOF. I would love to see sample pics between the 2.

Independent of what samples show, what's equally important is what they won't show: the fact that it will be easier to get things OOF backgrounds with the 50-135 since it does f/2.8. Comparisons will only be able to show what 50-200 and 55-300 *can* do, not what they can't. Which is to say, if your main concerns is OOF areas, you really want the 50-135 even without looking at samples.

Also there is a MASSIVE difference in pricing and target market as well.
