I ended up pulling the trigger and got the Nikon D500 with the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR lens and the MB-D17 battery pack with extra EN-EL 15 battery and one Sony 32GB XQD memory card. Four places had this kit but all were on back-order,
so I ended up getting each item separate. With careful shopping off eBay & Amazon I spent a total of $2986

Can't wait to get everything! I have lots of Birding, Wildlife, Mountain trips planned for 2017 with one of my favorite trips here:
(gotta get that bald eagle and osprey fishing there)
