My D700 shoots motorsports mainly. 5fps is just fine, but if I wack the D3 battery in the grip, I get 8fps. Noise is fine, even at 3AM at Le Mans!

What you MAY find limiting is the AF coverage? My son uses a D300s, and complains the AF points in a 700 don't go out far enough.

I don't think AF coverage would be an issue for me as I use center 9 points for sports tracking which should work just fine on D700.

X2 converter should cover your reach requirements.

The loss of two stops of light wouldn't exactly make the TC 2.0 good for low light shooting.
