Peter, if you were picking 1 - 500 ii, 600 ii or 800 which would you pick?
Definitely 500 II because of its friendly weight, and it works great with 1.4xTC MkIII (IQ and AF)which is very often long enough for me. That is the only long lens that I have never mounted on any sort of a pod, very much like my old 500 f/4.5L, and I can walk around with it either in my arms or in the Tenba bag slung over my shoulder.
With time I will probably get rid of both 600 and 800, and retain 500II for its user friendliness, and also 400II for its overall excellence as well as very good 800mm f/5.6 ( i.e., 400 II +2xTC MkIII) when needed.
