Between 300mm f4, 70-200mm f2.8 and 80-400mm which one would you choose and why?

How about this? Would you post a comparison of images at 300mm of both lenses? Obviously more as a test so same scene etc.

Here you go - posted without comment. Both images taken with a Z7 at 300mm, hand-held with VR (and in-body VR) on Aperture priority at f/6.3 (the difference in brightness is because the camera chose a slightly different shutter speed for the two shots). No processing other than re-sizing in PS.

Thank you, but I am afraid those two images don't tell me what the difference is between the two, perhaps that is what you intended?

What sort of images were you looking for?

Well something that highlights differences would be nice. Such as 300mm at f4 and the zoom at 5.6, and a scene with at least some background bokeh. I guess you were trying to show that at f6.3 they are similar in sharpness?  It is more interesting to know how they differ.

I'm out of this thread. I was trying to help by giving honest opinions, but you don't seem to want to be helped.

Well I am certainly intrigued by the 70-300mm, if it is as sharp as the 300mm at f5.6.

Regards
