For wildlife photography the 80-400mm is my lens of choice. I prefer it to the 200-500mm and any of the 150-600mm lenses as it provides a more usable zoom range regardless of the size of the animal and the distance.

We seem to be getting off-topic somewhat.

The OP has already stated he doesn't want the lens for wildlife:

Although the OP did express this, the question is “Between [three lenses] which one would you choose and why?“

I would choose the 70-200 as it complements my kit of primarily wider-angle manual focus. I use the zoom for shooting my sons’ soccer games and for longer reach when I travel (back in the pre-COVID-19 days...). It’s an excellent lens for my needs, delivering fast focus, sharp images and great IQ. When I need to go a little longer, I have a 1.4 and 2.0 TC-III, though th latter doesn’t get much use.
