I'm springing for an N80, but need guidance on lenses. I’m shooting a mix between landscapes, birds, family – nothing special.

#1. The N80 is sold often as a “kit” that includes a D series Nikkor 28-80 mm f 3.5-4.5 lens. I’ve heard some hesitation over it because it has a plastic lens mount. Should I go with this lens in the kit, or another? Someone recently suggested I skip the "kit lens" and look at the Nikkor 28-105. Any thoughts?

#2. As a second longer lens, I’m looking at two: the Nikkor AF 70-300 f4-5.6 ED Zoom or the Nikkor AF 80-200 f2.8 ED. Any suggestions or guidance? Thanks!
