Why would you even bother buying a 500 II?
Because it is lighter, faster (aperture), faster focusing, probably better IQ, allows longer reach and it is cheaper than the zoom.
To me those sound like fairly straightforward reasons, I'd say.
However, if one must have a zoom, then get a zoom instead of 500 II or another prime. If they wanna believe that there will be no "penalty" (as outlined above) associated with such zoom selection as opposed to getting a suitable prime, that is their right too......it's a free country, and it's their money.
