Any of the Nikon 400/2.8 lenses are absolutely stunning with any of the teleconverters. However, I can't stress enough how heavy they are. Even a 500/4 or 600/4 are much more user friendly. If you are prepared for monopod or tripod shooting only then a 400/2.8 is superb.

The FL lenses are lighter but they give up a bit in IQ to their predecessors.
