My guess that would be a 500 DO.

Maybe, but it wouldn't be any more "affordable" than the 400/4DO II.

No it wouldn't however both are not superTeleZooms.

I think Nikon's new lightweight 500 is diffractive optics.

Nope. Only their 300/4 PF (phase fresnel) has DO-type elements. Their new 500/4 is just 100g lighter than EF 500 f/4L II.

This says 50% lighter but I'm not sure how much the predecessor weighs in comparison to a Canon 500.

Oops. It says refractive optics. I was skimming as I don't use Nikon.
