What are our options without breaking my shoulder and the bank? Which of these are better overall compared to what I already have?

  • AF-S 300 f4 (plus TC 14e)
  • 70-200 f2.8 (with TC 1.7 or 2.0?)
  • 80-400 VR
  • Any better option from Tamron or Sigma?

What I shoot is mostly 300mm so I don't really need the zoom, but appreciate more reach if possible. 500mm PF is just too expensive for us, so please don't suggest anything around or above this price range 🙂

Out of your list the first option is probably the one that meets your requirements best, the 70-300 is already a fast focusing lens with stunning VR that few other of your available choices can better. I sold my 70-200 after buying the 70-300 for it's better range, and lighter weight with little or no loss in image quality.

So 70-200 f2.8 VR + TC-20e is not better than AF-S 300 f4 + TC-14e ?

When you had yours, have you had chance to use TC with it?
