First of all, shouldn't this topic be here instead?
Secondly, welcome to the forum. That is a tough decision you have to make there. We all know that the 70-200 VRII is the ultimate choice here. How much extra is the VRII over the VRI version? If it is not that much more and you could save it in a couple of months, that is exactly what I'd do. But if it is a considerable amount more expensive (ie: unjustifiable for the extra quality) and you need the lens soon and feel you would still be happy with the VRI, the VRI is still an excellent lens.
Also, how big are you going to be printing? If you are not printing huge and you won't be selling your work or publishing it, the VRI will likely more than suffice if the VRII is too expensive. Personally though, I'd save the extra for for the 70-200, if you are in a position to do so.
