I have been using this lens for my wildlife and bird photography with the 3 TC's, 1.4 TCII, 1.7 TCII and 2x TCIII, for the last 2.5 years and all I can say is that it is a gem and I am sure you'll love it. It is probably my most utilised lens.
Even with the TC's it does a superb job and makes a great reasonably compact set up for travel if you need reach. Even though I have a 500 f4 VR, I sometimes just take the 300 and use TC's for a compact lighter weight kit.
A few samples showing the excellent IQ and detail from this incredible lens including some samples with TC's.
D800 + 300mm f2.8 VRII @ f5
D800 + 300mm f2.8 VRII @ f4
D700 + 300mm f2.8 VRII + 2x TCIII, ISO3200, f9, 1/50sec!
D700 + 300mm f2.8 VRII + 1.4x TCII, ISO2000, f5.6, 1/80sec!
D7000 + 300mm f2.8 VRII + 2x TCIII, f8, 1/100sec, ISO640
D700 + 300mm f2.8 VRII + 2x TCIII, f6.3, 1/640sec, ISO3200. This is not even 1 full stop down from wide open, but 1/3rd of a stop @ f6.3!! Plenty of detail still.
