Smaller and lighter than the 500 f4...

You need a new camera bad, preferably a backpack.

That is how I carry my 200-500.  If I am actively photographing birds, the lens is in my hands or on a tripod.  A tripod is nice because you can set the lens-camera-tripod down any time you want and the weight is off your hands.

200-500 yesterday:
