The weight difference is about 15 ounces. Unless every ounce is of a critical importance to you - for example, wilderness hiking/camping where weight is a trade-off - equipment versus supplies - you're giving up quite a bit to downgrade to a 55-200. The VR is better on the longer lens and 300mm is 300mm - sure you can crop it, but nothing beats optical zoom power. The handling and build are of a higher tier as well.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.
