Is there an adapter or other way to use autofocus with an AF lens on an AF-S body (D5100)?

I got this AF lens and a D5100. Love the long focal length, but too hard to focus Can anything be done?

This is one reason a D5100, D3100 are called crippled cameras. The lens will not autofocus without AF-S & may not meter on the camera. There is nothing you can do to the lens to "fix" it. The only thing you can do is get another body like the D90 or D7000 that don't have this limitation.
