Ian, welcome to Nikonians!
I'd prefer to have a faster combo with the 70-200 + 1.7TC but I'd also like the extra reach with the 80-400 - but I shoot with an FX camera and before that, with a film camera. One thing, though, with a DX camera and longer focal lengths, you may have issues with framing and hand holding. (I'd prefer the AF-S focus speed over a screw drive lens' slow AF.)
