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.

Where the HECK did you get this idea?

Yeah, that actually makes no sense. In actual Imatest testing, the latest NIkon telephotos always best their older counterparts.
