Hey guys, I'm getting into shooting racing. I shot my first race last fall and used my D7500.

So I ain't buying a used 500 or 600 f4 for five grand , not happening lol... Luckily these are getting cheap under 2k now.

D7500 owner here also... you keep mentioning price. My recommendation will be the extremely lightweight and very affordable 70-300 AF-P/VR. I have this lens and love it... got it for $180 at the camera swapmeet... quite possibly strong enough for the racing shots you're taking. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

The OP specifically said he is hesitant even about the 200-400 because it doesn't have enough reach. So the 70-300 is pretty much irrelevant for his considerations.

And the 200-400 isn't very good at infinity.
