Looking for minor upgrade for AF-P 70-300

I have the AF-P 70-300 FX lens, been very happy with it. Want a second lens so both me and my wife can shoot wild life together. Looking for one with slightly more reach, better AF and IQ if possible.

I rented the AF-S 200-500 for few days just to get the feel of it, it was a great lens but we think this probably too heavy for us.

What are our options without breaking my shoulder and the bank? Which of these are better overall compared to what I already have?

  • AF-S 300 f4 (plus TC 14e)
  • 70-200 f2.8 (with TC 1.7 or 2.0?)
  • 80-400 VR
  • Any better option from Tamron or Sigma?

What I shoot is mostly 300mm so I don't really need the zoom, but appreciate more reach if possible. 500mm PF is just too expensive for us, so please don't suggest anything around or above this price range 🙂
