Convince me to buy the SEL18200 for £400!

My work has just given me a £150 voucher for a high street retailer in the UK. They mainly sell clothes but just happen to also sell the SEL18200 for £699 (which is weird because they don't sell any other high end camera gear). The SEL18200 currently has 20% off so with my voucher I can get it for around £400 new.

My dilemma is whether I should spend the money on the 50mm e-mount lens instead (which is more what I'm after... faster as well) and use the voucher for something else. Or perhaps get the SEL18200 and then sell it on eBay and then buy the CZ lens.

Is the 18200 still a worthy lens? It seems to have lost a bit of its luster since all the other e-mount lenses came out. Would you buy it for £400 without thinking about it? (and no, there isn't really anything else I can spend the voucher on).
