I'm quite sure there is improved image quality, but geez, how good do I need it. Again, Bob's car pics impress me that he took with that lens. My analogy would be, yes, I'd sure like that Mercedes SL but will the the Caddy SRX work for me at a lower cost....certainly. It all boils down to what you need it for and how good you require the images to be.

YES. That's exactly my point. So don't just compare the two based on angle of view and price.
