Re: How to pick a WA lens?

I'm going the opposite direction in lenses today.  Just ordered a 500 pf.   Although the reasons are starting to align with yours - at my age (66) I'm not a fan of carrying the 200-500 around so much, along with the tripod, ball head, and waist bag of other stuff.

The small size and weight of the 500 is a huge appeal.  Perhaps it will make my travel bag someday, if I can ever travel again (out of country).

On the extreme opposite of THAT (500mm), I've been thinking fondly of my 10.5mm F2.8 fisheye.  As tiny a DSLR lens as I've got, and huge fun in its limited way.   Wish I had an alternative for the D850, but of course it could never be as small.
