Well, even that one already targets a very small niche
I have honestly been very tempted by the 500 PF, because I loved the 300 PF and its size. I handled the 500 PF at the last photokina, it is amazingly small and light.
Still, I'd love to add some reach with a TC, and then f/5.6 becomes an issue already. And, as you already mentioned, availability is another one.
At least for now I ended up with a 500/4 VR (not the FL) that will teach me all the lessons of how to handle such a beast... and what to shoot with it
However, in the long run I might aim for a 400 FL VR instead, combined with both TCs.
Well, how "gloriously refreshing" to hear an OL "super moderator" extolling the vertues of a professional bright telephoto prime ........
........ and with aspirations towards an even brighter F2.8 400mm FL VR ......
....... your on the right track .....
