..yes, this is the combo I use myself..


I had been thinking about the 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 AF-P. But experiencing the limitations with 140mm last week, I went straight for the 200-500. I did also think about a Sigma 150-600 due to increased zoom range and flexibility with the USB dock. But everyone warns about the weight of the Sports version despite of reduced speed. The Contemporary version is said to be less sharp and having worse AF.

Nikon's 200-500 just hits my sweet spot: optically, mechanically and price wise. So far no need for any fine tune ... that's of course even better than an USB dock
