Nikon 80-200 vs Nikon 70-200 vr2

Hey guys! Right now I am using the Nikkor 80-200 2.8 (two ring) alot for portraits and weddings. The lens is great as long as it is stopped down to F4. At F2.8 the lens is fine for head shots but anything else it is to soft. I'm thinking about upgrading to the 70-200 vr2 and have a couple questions. How does it perform at 2.8?? In real world shooting how much does VR help for camera shake? I keep my SS about 1/400th right now to get sharp results with the 80-200. BTW I use a D800. Thanks!

Nikon D800
