I honestly can't see why one would do this instead of the equally good 180/2.8. You can carry them, handhold them etc and they're far cheaper and I doubt anyone of us could tell the difference in a shot.
The 180/2.8 is an excellent lens. But 200/2 VR is a much better lens in terms of sharpness, color rendition, and focus speed/accuracy, not to mention that it can be hand hold at a much lower shutter speed because of VR. I've used 180/2.8 ED-IF-D, 70-200/2.8 VR1, VR2 and 200/2 VR1. The 200/2 VR is in a class by itself. If you have an opportunity to try one, you will know the difference all around.
