If you do not think the newer one will improve your photos, then sell 
it.  Why carry around extra weight and $$$ if it does not pay off in the 
images?  That said, it probably will improve some images, like maybe 
flare-prone situations? I'm guessing, I have never used one.

Me, I use older 35 'lux and older 50 'cron - no desire to update them, 
they are perfect for me.  It kills me how small the oler 35 'lux is - 
just incredible, and it can perform too!
