I am currently looking for a lens to use on my D600 for wildlife and birding. I am currently using a 70-300mm VR (a hold over from my DX days). The three I am considering are the 300mm af-s f4, 70-200mm f4 and the 80-400mm. I currently have a tc-14eII. What I am looking for is high performance. Does the 80-400mm really give that to me on a 24mp camera? It is not compatible with the teleconverter. Does the 70-200 perform well with a 2x teleconverter? I have used the 300 with a converter and have been happy with the outcome. Now that I am ready to buy, which one do I go for? Thank you in advance for your input.

I donated to Nikonians, why don't you:
