It depends on the subjects You work with.

I own AF-S 80-200, which is comparable to the 70-200 in many aspects.

Each time I'm considering taking this lens with me, I'm expecting long focal length to be usefull. And then I'm also thinking about taking my af-s 300/4. And both lenses are in most situations too heavy to be carried together.

I'm thinking of gettinf 70-200/4 vr, because this lens together with 300/4 is not much heavier than 70-200/2,8 alone. Together with 1,4 tc this pair will give me the range up to 420mm with excellent quality. That's all I need...

Bokeh-vise I don't expect too big difference between these two, as above 70mm dof is shallow even at 5,6.
