TC 2.0 + 300 f/2.8, or AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6

Did you see that Brad Hill is highly positive about using the 120-300mm f/2.8 with TC 2.0 III and D500.

I have used the AF-S 300 f/2.8 G with TC 2.0 III and a D7100 . I was only moderately satisfied, maybe AF on the D7100 was lacking.  I should try again with D500.

The 300mm f/2.8 mostly stayed home lately. I was using the less weighty AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6 E with the D500. I prefer the zoom flexibility, and can live with the 500mm long end. IQ is good.

long lens measured MTF comparisons at f/5.6
