Re: Wildlife photography

There is typically never enough focal length for birds, so most other things being equal, 500 is better than 400 and 600 is better than 500.

I have a D7500 and a Nikon 200-500. The Nikon is an excellent and relatively affordable lens, but, all things considered (size, cost, quality), I'd probably go for a Tamron 150-600 if I wanted the longest decent lens I could get without mortgaging the house.

However, 400mm is very usable and if you go to where the birds are or if you get them to come to you, you should get some good photos. Something will always be farther away than you would wish.
