I also have the 105 f/2.8 VR, but...

It hunts like crazy when focusing, and requires zooming with your feet, which is not always practical, or possible. I'm not familiar with the f/2 version, but I find that f/1.4 is way too tight a DOF to be practical. I really like portraits where both the tip of the nose, and the ears are in focus. At f/1.4 with a 50 or 85 or 105, that is not possible.
