I have a D800 and a 70-200mm f4.  Also purchased the 2x tele to try with it.  Results? In a word "awful".  Selling the 2x and thinking about the 300mm f4 with 1.4x tele, or potentially the new 80-400mm. IMHO forget the 2x tele.

I went on a photo shoot around London Zoo a couple of weeks ago and mainly used my 105 micro. About the right length for many shots and also for cloesups. I borrowed his Nikon 2* TC and was quite disappointed. I ended up shooting at f8 to keep the images sharp. He did say he much prefers his 1.4 TC.
