The difference in focal lenght between the 500 and 600mm is too small to justify the weight of the 600mm. The 800mm is also lighter than the 600m. The 1,25 x dedicated converter for the 800mm is superb. Of course the price tag is the minus...

So far the 800mm reveals itself to be an extremely efficient lense for bird photography and makes it more possible to take special pictures, especially compressed motives. The 500mm is very handy and can normally be used handheld.
