My 70-200 went on eBay last week and sold for $1700. I didn't use it as much as some of you guys would and when I did...it was too large to take it out in the streets and it was a pain to carry around. I decided to drop down to the 180 2.8 for size and I hear that it is actually a better performing lens. Do you think you would get sharper images because the 180 2.8 is lighter and easy to hold? I always wondered if my 70-200 images indoors could have been better if the lens wasn't as large as it was. VR helps but a blurry photo is always a blurry photo.
