also seriously consider D7100 body for 1.5x reach
In reply to Dr Bob, Feb 4, 2014

functionality is quite similar to D800, while the body look is more similar to D600. You may use the TC-14 for AF with the AFS 80-400 giving you a field of view corresponding to 800mm FX  with 24MP

you gain portability, spare cost,

but loose light gathering power against the really serious glass option.

The IQ should remain considerably better than with the 2.7x reach from V1/V2 bodies that were also suggested in this thread.
