I have just purchased the following lens to accompany my Nikon D500:
AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR - £1,349 (see here)
However, having purchased this lens a few hours ago, it has been pointed out to me that the following lens would be better if I could cover the extra cost:
AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR - £2,849 (see here)
How essential is a larger aperture when it comes to wildlife photography? More specifically, African wildlife that will be photographed from a vehicle (no tripod) during dusk and dawn.
The additional £1,500 is doable, but I only want to spend this extra amount if it will make a big difference to the sharpness and quality of the photos I take.
Update - Just to mention, this will not be my primary lens when photographing wildlife, my primary lens is the Nikon 200-500mm.
