200/2.8 is great, gives lively, contrasty, saturated and sharp images with nice bokeh, no question about it. I don't remember any CA or other problems either.

But consider also this:

1. For 200mm and handholding, you need either 1/200 - 1/400, or image stabilizer

2. Fast AF is great especially for those types of photography where zoom is also handy
