Lightweight Option for Z9?

Z9 on the way but need a lighter option than the 200-500?

Can't justify the 100-400 (or even get one)

80-400?

300mm PF with 1x4 adaptor

500mm PF 5.6 too limiting for single lens

Any advise appreciated, mainly shoot Aviation and BIF

Total weight of Z9 - 200-500 - ADAPTOR = 3,775g. The Z9 is a beast!  which is just too heavy for me when handholding when held high for any period of time. I know this because of a combo I have been using that weighed ,2775g and that I found just manageable but arms  hurt after a few hours using periodically for a few mins at a time.

I guess there are ways around it such as Gimble etc, but then I am limiting my versatility?

Ans before anyone says choose a different camera lol, I am looking for a lighter lens option not another camera.

Thanks

Nikon Z9
