I'd love a 500mm for BIF. I really would. But as previous posters have noted, sometimes with the long glass it is hard to get the bird completely in the frame and hard to find it to focus. I have a 100-400 and have been shooting eagles with it and I do find that it is nice on occasion to be able to pull it back to get the whole bird.
