Flash for D850. SB800 or SB900?

I’m new to Nikon. I’m after a fairly powerful flash for fill in flash and long distance flash for birds on 500mm lens.

I need high speed synch.

I don’t need many of the features of later models for wireless and multi gun use so a second hand model gives good savings.

Looking at the two the 800 is smaller and lighter and seems to have as good a guide number as the larger and heavier 900. I can see the recycle time of the 900 is shorter but I think the weight saving is more important.

Does anyone have any views?
