I don't see 125mm vs 200mm as a discussion of anything but perspective and working distance.

I agree with Ted here, and these two aspects can only be chosen by the person who is actually taking the shots...coz, only they know exactly what approach suits them best.

I'd also like to try the Nikon 300/4 AF-S with TC's for even more working distance and a very different perspective.

Me too, the 300/4 with a 52mm extension tube (or similar) would probably work well for some of my flower allowing an islolated closeup subject matter with a very smooth background bokeh.
