I am also in the same dilemma and looking around for some push on one of these lenses. If you've or use filters and haven't pulled the trigger on either yet, you may want to consider the difference in filter sizes of the 2 lenses in question. The 80-200 takes a 77mm filter as like most other Pro Nikon lenses while the 70-300 takes a 67mm. It may not be a deal breaker for you but I shoot mostly nature and polarizing or ND filters are very useful to me.
