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.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your reply. I was comparing a 200mm f/2.8 prime with a 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom.
