you are anonymous and nevertheless calling me Wolfi which is inappropriate.
Sorry… wird nicht wieder passieren!

As far as I appear to have seen you also own the 200-400 f/4 which gives a good combo with the 600. Buy a second body…
I do have a second D850 for that lens too …but when
it stayed in the studio…


You might also consider replacing the gimbal head with a fluid video head as well which is advantageous for BIF
A fluid video head? Nope thanks! A fluid gimbal may be
a worthy option but my actual gimbals offer such great
damping I would not jump on that solution right away.
Light is free… capturing it is not!

That's what I have thought while being a gimbal user for long years: As soon as i got my video head i never have used the Gimbal ever since. The great advantage is that you dont need to place the Camera lens combo in balance but more to the front and thus you can pan faster which is advantageous when pursuing birds in flight, just saying.
