That 800 5.6 was still there earlier today Monty BTW, its only 5.5 kg, just looked it up on that photosynthesis site My 500 F4P's 3kg, and that's already a hefty load to pull out of its case and mount the camera on it.
Jose, Curtis pointed out earlier that the 800 + 2XTC is 2400 since you have the D7000. Even more amazing how you keep that setup stable. I got a longer QR plate recently for the 500mm, with two screws instead of one, I think its somewhat less jittery now.
One more with the 800mm f/5.6 ai, this time "naked" - no TC (hey Monty, what about that copy at KEH ).
Eucalyptus bark with a Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 wide open, at 40m (~130 feet) of my balcony:
D7000 + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 EDIF + tripod. ISO 200, wide open (f/5.6) at 1/800s. ~30% cropped. The bark was at 40m of distance according to lens scale.
WOW!!! Crazy sharp! Yet the branch it so smooth!
I love it, but not enough to buy a big lens
