Thanks Steve.  Yes I liked the 300 f2.8 using the converters.  I am just wondering how different it would be from the 80-400 but of course that lens is so new.  Thanks for the advice about the D7100- I am thinking that would be a great option and people seem to be really liking it.

The IQ of the 300 f/2.8 with 1.4 TC is excellent at f4.  with the TC-20E-III I stop down to f/6.3 or 7.1.    The best thing you can do for zoom is to get a D7100.  The added APS-C + 1.3 crop mode gets you 2X whatever is on your camera without losing a stop.

I cannot personally speak to the 80-400.
