The difference in quality.....

All things considered, photographers skill, camera body, etc......

Is there an actual difference in glass quality between the pro level lenses and the consumer level lenses?

I know the lens casings are made differently but what about the inner workings?

If you had a 55-200mm VR (or another lens at the comsumer level) and a 70-200 VR 2.8 mounted on the same camera body with the same settings and all other things being equal ......will one show a noticeable difference in image quality without pixel peeping?

I understand the benefits of a faster lens and all else, just wondering if they use "better glass' for the pro level lenses or the same stuff? Different coatings etc......
