Sigma 70-200 OS vs Nikon 70-200 VRII

I know there has already been a lot of discussion on comparing these lenses. I guess I want to have some feedback to lean me toward a selection. Basically, I have a D7000 that I use for my personal use and some very occasional contracts (mostly portraits and weddings). I already have a Sigma 70-200 and it ain't half bad at all. Thing is, I could have the new OS version for a very good price ('bout 1k w filter) used. Also, my local dealer is having a deal on the Nikon VRII at 2k including a filter.

I have tested the Nikon and it is a charm. I can't test the Sigma as I live in a remote area but I can't shake the feeling I could save a 1000$...

Obviously, my main need for this lens is portraiture.

Any thoughts?
