Will be in Flagstaff in about 3 weeks, with planned excursions to Sedona and the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. I'll be taking my regular kit with me (28-70, 17-35, 50 prime, 16 Fisheye), but want something with more reach as well. I'll be shooting with both D700 and D800 bodies.

So, the question is - Should I go for an 80-400 or 28-300 or 70-200. Clearly, the 70-200 will be the best optically, but considering where I'm headed, should I trade that for the extra reach of the other two possibilities?

Or, does anyone have any other suggestions?

The trick is not to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. The trick is to find the person life has handed vodka to and then have a party.
