Buy the 500 PF or wait for 200-600 Z?
1

I enjoyed reading people's wishes for the planned 200-600 Z lens https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64585177

Some of the wishes are a little unrealstic I think; you can't have wide aperture, light weight, small size, light weight and a low price all in one package! I am rather taken by the 500 PF lens with FTZ as I want a light and portable long lens for bird photography. It's rather expensive but that's life!

I wanted to wait until the 200-600 is released so I could compare them as I'd prefer a native Z lens than use the FTZ. But I very much doubt that the zoom will match the portability of the PF design. Any thoughts? I'm getting rather impatient waiting for Nikon
