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.

The previous poster probably meant 200mm f/2.

I know that it is covered by the 70-200 zoom, but if you think about it, some would use the 70-200 probably most at the 200mm end. Then you will have cost and weight savings. If it will have the 85FE quality and be black, It will be a winner in my book

Not sure though why 200mm would not be great for full frame but I can definitely see the benefit for aps-c.
