Nikon Z 70-200 mm 2.8 + Z TC-2x or the new Z 100-400 mm


I went through some of the other discussion around this thread. I wanted to present my situation and see what advice I get from this forum.

I switched from my D600 to Z6ii in January and have been enjoying the new camera. I do not earn money from photography. The only native Z lens I have is the 24-200 f/4-6.3 which has been excellent as a walk around lens. I am selling my F-mount lenses (mostly f/4s) to make room for the Z-mount lenses. My interests are travel photography with a large emphasis on landscapes and nature. However, I shoot everything else in between - macro, portraits etc. using F-mount primes. My better pictures are here

The 70-200 mm 2.8 will give me an professional grade lens in a range that I use very often. With the TC, it will also give me the extended range that I sorely miss for the occasional birding / fleet week / wildlife shooting / super moon opportunity. I am very tempted to go with this option.

On the other hand, the new 100-400 mm will give me that range with a fit for purpose lens and extension opportunities in the future.

I have never used a TC but based on the Z TC-2x reviews, it looks like it will get the job done for me

Appreciate your inputs in advance
