Help!
I am going to Glacier National Park next week and I need(read want) a good wildlife lens. I have an N80 body with the Nikon 18-35, 28-105, and 70-300. I want a lens that works better with a tele converter.
What would user opinions be on the above lenses. I like the hand holdabilty (?) of the 80-400, but I also like the AF speed of the AFS lenses. I figure 400mm minimum telephoto.
I have read all of the applicable links here, but I need help. Any input would be appreciated. If only the 80-400 focused faster, it would be a no brainer. Or if I could hand hold a long AFS. I have an excellent tripod, but the dang animals never wait for me to get setup.
One more thing, this is an emergency. I need to order whatever lens by Tuesday

Thanks in Advance,
Jeff Johnson
