I am thinking the same and even though use d800 have planned to buy the Sigma 50-150 f2.8 OS lens and use in 1,2 or dx mode. According Photozone is very good lens. The difference between 150mm and 200mm is not a big problem. Maybe Nikon will do 50-200 f2.8, maybe not, because there is already 70-200 f2.8 vrII which is top quality lens but was too heavy for my use. I miss lens like Canon 70-200 f4 L Is. It was so good and practical! And if the f4 is a problem there is for shallow dof 135 f2 or 85 f1.4 lenses. Nikon, please come back to 70-200mm (70-210) f4 lens! Just now I am trying the old 70-210 4.0-5.6 AF-D -lens which has very good reputation.

Thanks for your thoughts - I would also lean a little bit towards the 50-150 OS.
But I dont know of any formal tests.
I think on photozone there is only a test of the non-OS version

Verdict says 3,5 stars and I would expect something better with the bigger OS version.
