I am planning a safari to Botswana soon and have the 70-200 with 1.7 TC, which gives me a 340mm f4.8 on my D800. Has anyone compared this to the new 80-400 f5.6? Also, has anyone used the 1.4 TC on the 80-400, which would push it closer to f8 at 400 mm? I can only carry 1 long lens on the trip. I'm willing to get the 80-400 if it's better, otherwise I'll just use the 70-200 with TC and crop.
