The 70-200 f2.8 VR1 was not sharp to the edges on a full-frame camera. It made my full length portraits unacceptable, and that's shooting on a tripod with cable release and mirror up.

How unacceptable? I sold my VR1 before the VR2 existed. I bought a 200 f2.0.

I now also have the 70-200 VR2, it does the job well.

So, if you're full framed, I'd go with the new f4.0. Otherwise, the VR1 is probably OK.

Yes, I still have the 200 f2.0. It's still amazing.

I'm not surprised that a dedicated 200mm f2 would be tack sharp and a great lens.  How large is it compared to a 70-200 2.8 I or II?
