Thanks. I am not in a hurry as I cannot go anywhere. However I do take a lot of surfing photo so the 800/11 + R5 is very interesting. I probably have to buy a spare battery with the R5.

I have a Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 with a 1.4X TC that makes a 840mm lens at f9 that is a a little bigger but I like to zoom in from 300mm to 840mm once I have found the subject.  Finding the image subject can tough with a 800mm f11 lens but I  have never taken pictures of surfers.  After the virus I should try taken surfer pictures.  I am about 60 minutes drive away from Santa Cruz surfing.  I have a 2X TC which makes for the Sigma 1200mmf13 but the IQ is softer so I rarely use it but I crop the images from the 1.4X TC.

The 800mm f11 is a prime lens and may very well produce sharper images than my Sigma with the 1.4X TC.
