Re: A7R IV as wildlife camera to save weight?

The answer depends a lot on if you'd be happier with the versatility of a zoom lens as compared to the weight advantage (and perhaps sharpness) of a PF prime.

It seems that you are into photographing more distant creatures, as you like the longer focal length of the Sony 200-600mm.

If you can live with the inconvenience of a prime when photographing nearby wildlife, the D850 + 500mm PF combo ought to be just right. The camera is one of the best for wildlife out there, and 20MP vs 26MP isn't much of a difference.
