However, though it might not be 100% the same, looking at what some of of the Canon folks have to say about their 800 f/5.6 lenses suggests a number of advantages over the 600 with TC's:

I was looking at my TC14EII tonight for a different reason but it made me think about this thread. One potentially big advantage of the Nikon 800/5.6 over the 600/4 + 1.4X TC combination is that the existing 1.4X TC from Nikon does not have weather sealing. I'm not sure if any of the others (1.7 or 2.0) do but it seems unlikely. Maybe intentional by Nikon?
