From everything I've read, the only real difference between the old and new
versions is the switch that will lock the lens at 18mm.

There are also other differences: the new lens does not creep when pointed up or down, and has newer coatings to reduce flare and ghosting, among them.

It would only not creep if locked at the 18mm position; creep will still eventually develop at the other positions with use. Yep, newer coatings.

I saw you go for the current lens. No point waiting.
