Re: 1.4x Teleconverter or D7000?

I have been going along the same thought process. I am waiting for the D800, I have mostly FX lenses (including a Sigma 100-300 fd). For the interim I have bought a D7000 (really happy with it) and intend to get a D800 when it is available. D7000 will then be used for walkabout with family with a 18-200 and for long lens duty at airshows, motor racing etc. I am hoping this will work out well. I struggle to believe that you will get better image quality out of a D700 with teleconverter than a D7000 shooting the same lens, plus you also lose a stop of light.
Just my $0.02

good luck
