I have a d5600 with a Tamron 18-400 lens which I got to get into wildlife photography. After 18 months I have come to appreciate the limitations of both, so were do I go? Do I get a d7500 or a nikon 200 - 500 vr lens. I had thought of getting the lens first to see how well it worked on the 5600 compared to the tamron but think the af will struggle. I am going to Afica on safari in November, hence why looking now. Suggestions welcome or even alternatives. I do have 2 other dx lens 35mm prime and 18-140. Thanks in advance.

Have you considered buying the D500 probably the best DX wildelife and sports camera available today by any manufacturer, bar non, the AF just simply works , 10 fps, comfortable body, option of a battery pack. You could buy a 200-500 later and have a match made in heaven.
