Since Arnie suggested a lens not specifically mentioned in your request, I will do likewise and offer another 70-200 option also from Nikon - the 70-200 f/4 lens. It's probably in your price range, smaller and lighter, and very highly reviewed. Of course, it's f/4 vs f/2.8, so that might eliminate it from your consideration.

I have the 70-200 f/4 and use it with my D500 and love it. It also plays well with the Nikon 1.4x teleconverter (mine is TC-14E II) to give you a 147-420 f/5.6 zoom, that is if I have done my math correctly. I just thought I would throw that out there as another consideration for you in the 70-200 range.


-Thanks Mike

So now the question is Nikon with F4 or Sigma/Tamron with F2.8 .Big decision


Another vote for the Nikon f/4.  If weight is at all a consideration, I would think it the F/4 would be the one to choose.  Just got back from Alaska and was using the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 much of the time:
