I have both the tamron 150-600 g2 and 100-400. Both work well with a d500. I have a rifle mount I use with them greatly improves stability and ease to carry for along time. But none of these slow zooms are good in low light. Nothing beats fast primes that drain your pockets. I also carry a p900 as a side arm for sitting birds for zoom greater than 1000mm.

In my testing the Tamron 150-600 G1 and G2 were not usable in low light while all the other brands were.  The Sigma 150-600 Sport did the best yet it is a very heavy lens.
