I've just started using the 300mm f/4 on my D800E along with the TC-14E II teleconverter. Though I don't have much experience with it yet, I have been very impressed with the IQ. Here's one with this combination (hand held!):

Good IQ - what was your aperture? and ISO?

I was at f/5.6, which is wide open for this combination (you lose a stop with the TC-14E). ISO was 800, allowing me to get a fairly short exposure at 1/640.  The effective focal length is 420mm.
