Re: Nikon 400 f2.8G or 500mm f4G - best choice for wildlife?

I did indeed sell my 500 F4 G after acquiring the PF.  I do miss the stop sometimes, but the 500 PF is no slouch in the sharpness department and it’s incredibly easy to hike around with all day.  Sometimes I do get GAS and yearn for a 400 F2.8 but then think about my back and shoulders.  I shot the 500 G for 4 years handheld exclusively...

if the OP sees this, check my Flickr page in the link below.  I believe any image taken after October 10th was with the 500 PF mostly on a D850 with a few D5 images mixed in.
