To the OP: The discussion is almost solely about telephoto shooting so far. You need some lens which coveers WA such as 16-85 or even a consumer 18-55, -105, or -140 kit zoom. Consider the burdensome great weight of the 70-200 f2.8 if you were to purchase that rather than the more versatile and cheaper 80-400.

While I agree with the need for a wide angle in there (I'd recommend having a point-n-shoot in a shirt packet as an ultimate backup), I don't think the 80-400 is cheaper than the 70-200.
