To do head shots of approximately 250 adults under tight time constrains I'm weighing the advisability of using the Nikon 180 f/2.8 or the Nikon 70-200 VR f/4.

Here, I'm asking if you think a monopod would be helpful with either lens--on the D700. I need to move quickly (we've actually agreed that there will be only two shots per person). The subjects--many of them teachers and paraeducators--will have the work day with their students interrupted.

So, do you think a monopod will help me to move both swiftly and effectively?

I appreciate any advice you might offer.
