Then yes, while the 200-400 is quite good, the 300mm and 400mm Nikon primes are really in a class of their own.
And as all of us photographers know...it's hard to beat free.
Jim, not that you'll be looking to save space/weight, but I'm really impressed with the new Nikkor 300mm f/4 PF ED VR. It's not even as big or heavy as the 24-70 f/2.8 II, but it does a great job without breaking the bank or overloading the carry-on. I've used it with the 1.7x TC, too; the focus performance at f/7.6 (that's wide open) is a trifle spotty, but when it hits, it's pretty spectacular for 500mm from such a small piece of kit.
