Best lens option in the 70-500 range

Hi y'all just pondering this

I have been saving for a new lens for a while, in 70-500 range, in the meanwhile the new Nikon 80-400 and New Sigma 120-300 F2.8 have been announced / released. Price aside what would be the / your preferred option of those listed below?

The lens would be used on a D800E,  for general use plus wildlife, landscape, possibly astro.

(discounting the Sigma options of 150-500 and 50-500 due to f6.3 max aperture at telephoto)

Nikon 70-200 f2.8 vr II + teleconvertors

Sigma 120-300 f2.8 + teleconvertors

New Nikon 80-400 f5.6
