Hi All,

I am primarily a landscape/nature semi-pro photographer. I sell a modest amount of my work through the various microstock agencies. I recently moved to the Nikon platform and bought the D600 with a 16-35mm VR, a Sigma 105mm macro, and a Nikon 28-300mm VR walk-around lens. This week I bought the D7100 as a backup body and also for telephoto purposes.

I am looking for a medium telephoto combination for the D7100 body that could be used on occasion with the D600 - i.e. an FX solution. As the title implies, I am considering Nikon's 70-200mm f/4 lens (the f/2.8 version is bigger and heavier than I want) with the addition of TC-20E III for greater reach on occasion. I plan to shoot some wildlife and telephoto landscapes but no birding which would probably necessitate a longer, heavier telephoto lens. I do not plan to shoot in many low light situations hand-held so I think the f/4 lens would be fast enough, even with a teleconverter.

Does this sound like a good plan? I must admit that my 28-300mm lens is not bad on the D7100 but it is a bit soft at telephoto lengths, thus my interest in a sharper lens combo. If anyone with similar needs can share their experience I would be most appreciative.
