Recently got a 100-400 and it’s impressive for the price but still on the fence. 400 is still not really long enough, so 300 is okay (don’t do serious birding etc) and the size and weight savings are attractive. So... any thoughts on how the 70-300 AF-P compares? Mostly interested in 300mm wide open but any thoughts welcome.

If 300mm is long enough then go with the 70-300. These are from the 100-400 with a Z6. Testing AF on a street sign 50-60 feet away. I found the results with the Z6 inline with the D750 with minor AF adjustment. It is lighter then my 200-500 and much smaller.
