I had them both and sold the 45-200.

The 45-175 is lighter, smaller and has a faster AF.

The 45-175 is a bit sharper and has more contrast than the 45-200, but of course it doesn't go up to 200mm.

Speaking of flare, the 45-175 is a little better than the 45-200, but every telephoto lens will produce flare in some difficult contralight or straylight situations as tt321 described.
