I just want to add to the Staff answer about TC-201, which you can get from the manual of that lens on page 21:
"Optional accessories"
Teleconverter TC-201 (Vibration reduction mode is not effective and only manual focus is available.)

I will not suggest use any teleconverter to the lens with aperture 1/5.6, because all AF sensors on Nikon SLR and DSLR are limited with aperture 1/5.6.
With 1.4X teleconverter aperture of that lens will change from 1/5.6 to 1/8
With 2.0X teleconverter aperture of that lens will change from 1/5.6 to 1/11
As more bigger aperture changes as more slow and not accuracy will be AF and in low light conditions it will be too bad.

answer 1
I am very sorry, but Staff answer is not correct at all.
You can use this lens, but AF will be limited only in very low light situation, where with standard lenses you usually need to use AF assist illuminator function.
And the reason why is very simple:
In D50 "TTL phase detection by Nikon Multi-CAM900 autofocus module with AF-assist illuminator have range approximately 0.5–3.0 m / 1´8˝–9´10˝ "(see page 130 (Technical Notice-specifications).
And shooting distance scale for VR Zoom-Nikkor ED 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D lens "graduated in meters and feet from 2.3m (8 ft) to infinity "(see manual page 21, specification).
So theoretically D50 AF assist illuminator with VR Zoom-Nikkor ED 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D lens can work only in range 2.3m till 3.0m, if the body of the lens will not block the light from AF assist illuminator.
By the same reason in D50 manual (Page 107) you can find that:
"AF assist is not available with the following lenses:
• AF-S VR ED 70–200 mm f/2.8G
• AF ED 80–200 mm f/2.8D
• AF-S VR ED 200–400 mm f/4G
• AF-S VR 300 mm f/2.8G
• AF-S ED 80–200 mm f/2.8D
• AF VR ED 80–400 mm f/4.5–5.6D
• AF-S VR 200 mm f/2G"

But this lens is not for too low light conditions, where you can not see the object without AF assist illuminator function.

Good luck., I think you will love this lens

Yes, you can use this lens on the D50, but it might block the AF-assist iluminator at ranges under 1m. Note that the camera may not be able to focus using the autofocus if the AF-assist iluminator is blocked.

Sorry, you can can use this lens with D5000 only in manual AF mode.
D5000 do not have internal autofocus motor and AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR
80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED do not have it also.

If you need lenses with AF function for your D5000, you can use Nikkor lens starting from "AF-S ... ", which have internal AF motor.

Good luck

Question

Will this lense (AF VR Zoom 80-400mm) work with a D5000? Will it autofocus?

The reason I ask this question again is because the kind person who answered it earlier mentioned that AF-S lenses work with the D5000. However, if I read the above description right the lense is an AF not an AF - S.

Although I do not have any experience with the D5000 body I'm guessing that the issue is that it does not have a focus motor built in. This lens should still work with a body that does not have a focus motor as the motor is built into the lens. The issue of AF vs. AF-S is speed. The old AF system is just slower.

Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D5000 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Question

FX format lens with a DX format camera,

Although the focal length will change using a FX format lens with a DX format camera, is there also a photo quality reduction. For example, I want to shoot wildlife with the AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR 80-400MM F4.5-5.6 ED lens using a D40x or a D7000, With the 1.5 increases, do I lose clarity?

Theoretically it can happened, if the resolution of the lens is poor,
but AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED resolution is very high and with DX camera with the same image size or bigger (I think till 24 MPS) you will only win in details.
On DX format at 400mm this lens will have sharper corners than on FX.
Just take a look on MTF charts for 400mm and keep in mind that the max diameter corner in DX format is ~14,4mm.
Blue broken Meridional line for FX format corner ~0.13,
for DX format ~ 0.5.
That is much, much better.
With this lens on DX format you will win twice: second one - you will be closely to the wildlife, but use D7000 (it is better).

I would set the focus on Continuous focus and the camera will follow the subject as it moves and keep it in focus. Another method that I use in car and bike races, is to manually focus on a spot in the road that I know that they will be passion, and set up the exposure for that scene. I then face the spot so that my body is parallel to that position and is stable. then keeping my feet placed forward, I rotate my body to where the vehicle is coming, and I am in a somewhat unstable position. then keeping my camera rangefinder spot on the persons head I follow their action until just before my stable spot and press the shutter button. Of course, you can do the same thing using the burst mode. Another way is to press the shutter button down half way on you selected spot, locking the focus and exposure, then rotating your body as before to see the vehicle coming, and they depress the shutter button the rest of the ay when you are pointed in the forward direction. don't forget to follow through in your panning action.

No it won't, AF is far too slow. You won't even be able to take pictures. The ones you do get will be blurry. This lens is ancient and the AF is pathetically slow. Many of my friends bought it for airshow/aviation photography and never use it because all the AF does is hunt.

The 80-400 does not have a focusing motor and so the camera must have a focusing motor to allow auto focus to occur. The D3200 does not have a focusing motor, so this lens does not autofocus on the D3200. All metering and exposure functions work fine with this lens on the D3200. The only limitation is the autofocus.

answer 2
  I believe it is a characteristic of all modern Nikon F-mount lenses that have manual aperture rings (The G series lenses, such as the one that came stock with my D3200, don't even have manual aperture rings at all.), that in order for the camera to automatically control the aperture, the aperture ring needs to be set to the smallest aperture.  If the aperture ring is set to anything other than the smallest aperture, then the camera is mechanically unable to set it to any smaller aperture than the one to which the ring is set.  Obviously, this will be a problem in any mode in which the camera expects to be able to fully control the aperture.

  Just leave the lens set at ƒ32, and let the camera handle it.  That's how it is supposed to work.  I assure you that if your camera is working correctly, it will not actually stop your lens all the way down to ƒ32 unless other settings and conditions actually dictate that small an aperture.

This lens is not compatible with teleconverters due to the rear element which would contact the teleconverter lens.

I will not suggest use any teleconverter to the lens with aperture 1/5.6, because most AF on Nikon SLR and DSLR is limited with aperture 1/5.6.
AF with 1.4X, 1.7X or 2.0x will be mush slow and not accuracy.

In a word, Yes! This lens will work well with any Nikon DSLR no matter the size of the sensor. With your camera and its 1.5 crop factor this lens gives you the field of view of a 600 mm lens.
