You do realize with a fixed 400mm that you will miss all the closer shots. Right?

The best lens would be a 80-400 equivalent, if only a decent lens existed. The old Nikon doesn't focus fast enough. Plus it isn't much good past about 280mm. There are the Sigmas, but they aren't particularly sharp either.

Good luck.
