If you don't need a fast lens for sports, wildlife or low light, for "general photography", I would consider the AF-P 70-300mm f.4.5-5.6E VR. It's smaller and lighter (and much cheaper) than any of the lenses you mention, and produces nice images.

Its not that I don't need faster lens - I do. But price / size / availability in the longer range is a limiting factor.

I had a 70-300mm  version in the past - like all these zooms it was not great at 300mm and also slow to focus.

I am interested in views of the three lenses I mentioned rather than alternative suggestions.

I am currently leaning toward the 300mm prime.
