Anything beyond 500 mm is redundant. I have used a Tamron 200-500 for years and I can crop the crap out of it. A $1000 lens and cropping is a lot better than an $8000 lens and a Sherpa....

I have to respectfully disagree.  I can crop the crap out of  pictures as well but let me ask you....would you rather be able to crop the crap out of a zoom lens at 500mm or a prime at 600, 800, or more? Although zoom lenses especially G Series are fabulous in terms of quality, My preference would be to have a larger selection of bigger glass to chose from rather than having to justify my pics up to and only to 500mm, prime or zoom. Same principle of why I bought an 800 and 1600mm Minolta mirror lens to compliment my 500 reflex. All three are great and produce astonishing shots when used correctly but the difference from 500 to 800 to 1600 needs no explanation. 600mm AF F4 that weighs in around 12 pounds.................I will slog it around until something newer comes along that goes beyond the limit we have of 500mm.
