Lenses that autofocus with FT-1?

I think someone should start a list of lenses that will NOT autofocus with the FT-1. I went to the field today to try some lenses and found the 24-70mm f/2.8 works fine as well as the 300mm f/4, but unfortunately the lens I would love to autofocus will not, the 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6. For me this lens is the one I would love to see work with this combo.

The 300 is great but I would like to see a bit more reach for the wildlife. It is a bit hard to quickly locate the small birds with the 300 but the 80-400 has the zoom to help find them.

I will do more tests in the future to see how many lenses in my bag will actually autofocus with the FT-1.

Does anyone else have any that don't?
