The 200 f/4 AI is very good...small, light, great build, great optics, sharp from wide-open, good color and contrast.

i concur; it is all that you say and reasonably priced too.  i have both the 180 f2.8 and that lens and, honestly, when i was shooting MF primes (er, it has been a few years), the 200 went with me more often than the 180 just due to mass.
That said, 180 is the bees knees for indoor work particularly such as ballet or basketball games.
