Which telezoom 8020028 or 7020028VR



I have purchased after my "journey" with a Nikon D70, D50, Contax ND, Minolta 7D now in the meantime a Nikon D80, Tokina 12-24, Nikon 50/1.8D, Nikon 85/1.8D and am looking now for a telezoom.

As far as I could research, the best options qualitywise would be either the current Nikon 80-200/2.8 or the new 70-200/2.8 VR.

Since there is a huge price difference (I could also buy the 80-200 on ebay used cheaper), I would be interested in your experience with those 2 lenses.

Is there a difference in image quality visible with a 10MP or 12 MP DSLR? Which one is better?

How about bokeh, lens flare, contrast, CA, Vignetting, light fall off etc.?

Thanks in advance


I have to add: I am not interested in the VR feature and I do not need absolutely F2.8.

So if someone knows a Zoom with aperture of 3.5-4.5 in the 70-200 range which is at least as good in image quality as the 2 zooms mentioned above I would be also interested in this.

basically I am looking for a Nikon version of the Zeiss N 70-200/3.5-4.5
