Default Zoom extension for D7xx

I am contemplating a D7i or D7Hi but would like a slightly longer zoom capability than 200mm equivalent - say 300mm to 400mm. What extension options are there?

With the 5 Mp resolution of this camera, you can afford to crop some of your images to 300 or 400mm FOV and still have reasonable quality. You risk vignetting with most add on lenses and at 300 or 400mm camera shake is a real problem. In low light, you might not be able to shoot at high shutter speeds, requiring you to use a tripod.

Look at this site for which add-on lenses work best with the Dimage 7xxx cameras:
http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers...on_lenses.html

The Raynox is not a very good teleconverter.

The Olympus B-300 is the best for the Dimage 7xx series. The Olympus A-200 and C-210 are also good.

That 1.8X is probably not good, but the DOF of the example can do wonder for portrait!... Hmm where do they sell them (I prefer their full frame fisheye)?
