affordable 'long' glass for wildlife

I'm tempting to buy the new D780 and a longer lens for wildlife photograpy.

I now own a Fuji Xt2 which is amazing for traveling, street etc but I sometimes don't like the results of my 100-400 lens I use for wildlife. Unfortunately, there is no alternative long lens which makes me look to a more wildlife setup to complement the Fuji.

Simple, I'm not a pro and cannot justify the 10k plus costing lenses. Are there Nikon or 3th party lenses which are as sharp / good as canon's 100-400II? The range would be good enough for my shooting style and it's price would be more affordable (range 1500-2500 euro)

Thanks
