Maggie, best choice is a D500 or Z6/Z6II if you want to stay with APS-C

Compared to the D200, you will find that lens much more usable at f5.6
than on a D200. High-ISO is your saviour (been there, used that lens on
that body... not good in winter!)

You say "new" 80-400, I assume that means if is AF-S, not the original
AF (with screw drive AF). If the latter, you need to check the support
on the camera for that lens.
