If you can afford it, keeping the 500pf and a zoom like the 200-500 can have its advantages for those occasions where you need the zoom range on travel and you want to simplify logistics.

But it seems to complicate logistics for me. It's too big to travel, at least not without becoming the centerpiece of some carryon system.

That is definitely true....my cameras and lenses are always the centerpiece of my carryon system. I'll even leave my passport behind if it means I can carry on another lens.
