70/80-200 f2.8 options

Want to go for a f2.8 70/80-200. Ive had the 70-200VRII but sold it for financial reasons but can now replace it. Loved the sharpness, VR and overall quality but didn't like the 'breathing' which meant it lacked reach on occassions  for my typical subjects. Looked at the Sigma OS but again this seems to have the breathing effect. How do the older version 80-200s do on the D800/D800E. Looking at the 2-ring AF-D at about £500 in the UK or 'one-touch' for about £400. Thoughts and experiences welcome.
