OK thanks. No this is more for wildlife but I've had to rule out the D500 due to size and weight. The grip is feels too big to me (I have smaller hands) so adding a lens (like a 200-500) makes me feel like I'm going to drop the thing (this is partially why I went to the Z cameras--smaller lighter bodies, but they aren't really the best for wildlife, but great for travel and everything else).

I'm actually contemplating a D7200 (used) or a D7500.

Reckon spending time with the Zs, even if they may not get to where you want to with wildlife, is a very good idea. It takes time to work out what a camera will do, especially a newish range like this.

Also, there may be further Z developments coming up which may be of use to you.
