Pentax 55-300 compared to sigma 28-300

Hi. I have a question for you guys. I used to have a 55-300 dl that I sold because I didn't like the fact that the autofocus was to hesitant for my taste. Now, I never compare the IQ between this two lenses. Therefore, I would like to hear your thoughts about it. I might sale the sigma and try the new 55-300 but before I do so I would like to hear your opinions. Thanks and keep on shooting.

Well, you're comparing a FF superzoom to an APS-C telephoto zoom. Based on that alone you should be able to expect much more from the 55-300mm at the long end.
