I posted this in the 200 vr thread, but thought it might be better to ask this question in a thread of its own. I love the look of the 200 f2 but wonder if the 300 wouldn't be a better choice for field sports and baseball? I currently have the 80-200 afs and, if I get the 200, I thought I would replace it with that and a 85 1.4. If I get a 300, I guess I would keep the 80-200. Also, if I go with the 300, it probabley won't be the VR. Just too much $$$ ($$$$$$$$). I have a trip to Africa booked for early next year and would love to talk the wife into one of these before we go. I'm looking at a 80-400 VR (or other option)--something cheeper than the 200 or 300, as a back-up plan if she doesn't okay the big dollar outlay right now. Thoughts?
