I have owned the 70-200 VR (both versions), and still have a 80-200 AF-D (2 ring), and recently purchased the 70-200 F4 VR III.

I originally purchased the 70-200 2.8 VR in DX days, and was very pleased, but found that it didn't hold up as well for full frame (with my new D700).

I found nothing to complain about with the 70-200 VR II, except the weight.

Then, when the 70-200 F4 VR came out, I read some positive reviews and purchased one earlier this year.  The weight was definitely a lot less, and quite easy to hand-hold (the VR is excellent, as others have said).  I found the sharpness at least as good as the VR-II, especially at the 200 mm end, and while I miss the F2.8 max aperture, tripod collar and better build, I don't miss the weight.
