Okay..here we go again.

I have read the posts on the AF-S 80-200mm and it looks live a fantastic lens and a lens that I would definitely like.

However, what would be the choice here if you all had to choose between the two??? The price difference is not that bad.

What about a TC14e or TC20e with either lens???

I know that Nikon has not yet released the VR lens, and that a number of you may have already bought a AF-S 80-200mm, but is this a fair comparison??? After buying a AF-S 80-200, would you even consider a AF VR 80-400mm?????

Honestly, I am really torn between these two lenses, as I am planning the purchase of my first "large" lens. I like the wider range (80-400 vs. 80-200) but I also like what I read here about the Silent Wave stuff. As I said, the cost difference (at least with CameraWorld) is not sunstantial enough to base a choice on price alone (like the Tokina ATX Pro 20-80mm vs. the Nikkor AF-S 20-70mm...now that is a substantial price difference).

Once again, y'alls opinion is much appreciated!!!!!!
