I have this situation with my Leica 180/2, sort of. I love this lens, it is a true dream lens for me, but I don't use it that much, and the price has gone up about 1000 Euro since I bought it, and is slowly continuing upwards. Not 3x, but still a sizeable chunk. For now I am keeping it, but I guess I need to use it more if I were to justify that.
The Cron 180/2 is a great lens but I personally prefer the Nikon 200/2 G VRII mainly because of AF.
I actually owned the 180/2 and the Nikkor 200/2 VR I at the same time, but ended up selling the Nikon. The Nikkor was a tiny bit sharper wide open, had AF, and everything else went to the Leica. The 180/2 was smaller, lighter, a much better shape for handholding, has a built-in pull-out hood, a normal lens cap, better manual focus (doh), and is just more beautiful
