For me, in this order

200mm f/2.8 - almost sure that this is very far off, if ever possible. Make it black. G or non-G is ok, but I can not afford a GM.

Tamron 75-210 f/2.8 - price it at sony 70-300 G level and I will buy in a heartbeat.

180 2.8 - an alternative to the 200mm above

200 2.8 is already covered in the 70-200 2.8. It'd need to be 200 f2 to stick out.

Not really. A dedicated 200mm f/2.8 prime has the potential to be much smaller and lighter, as well as cheaper. They're not great on 35mm bodies, I'll agree - but on APS-C they are fantastic.

Putting it mildly.  The glass in a 200mm f/2.8 would weight over twice what the glass would in a 200mm, f/2.8, as would be the housing.  It also costs about five times the price, as shown by Nikon and Canon.
