I am on the fence about these 2 lenses. The 300 is significantly larger and heavier than the 200. Can someone who has experience with both lens advice on the following:

1) which has better bokeh

2) At what distance from subject does one has to be , in order to get reasonable OoF blur?

I used to have a 70-300 (non-lemon):

- sharp from 70 to 200
- not so sharp from 200-300 unless stopped down considerably
- OK bokeh for a zoom lens

I recently traded my 70-300 for a 70-200 because of the weigth difference and not using the 200-300 range:

- sharper from 70 to 200
- noisier af compared to 70-300
- Nice bokeh for a zoom lens

So imo the 70-200 has better bokeh and you can get much closer yielding better bokeh for portraits for example. Not sure about the Oof distance..
