I own the 105 and previously the 70-200 f2.8 VRII.

The 105 constantly leaves me wanting more reach when I try to use it as a telephoto. It's soon to be replaced in this role with the 200 f2.


... I don't see myself with another 70-200 and will instead use primes, including the 105, all on a D4s.

I'm curious: what was it about the 70-200 f/2.8 VR II that made you decide to get rid of it and swear off 70-200 zooms forever? I'm not advocating here; I don't own a 70-200mm. This is purely a request for information. Maybe your reasons will end up applying to me, too.
