Own a 18-70 3.5-4.5 DX any value in upgrade to 17-55 2.8 DX

I have the 18-70 DX 3.5-4.5 and it is an OK lens.
I am strictly a hobby photographer.

I notice that the 17-55 2.8 DX used generally has a lower resale value, perhaps the current owner is upgrading to an FX model.
I have the 35 1.8g and the 85 1.8g, those are the two I carry with me.
Being an old timer I have a reluctancy  to zooms

I also have a 70-300 4.5-5-6g VR, used it only for Grandkids sports.
Would there be a major upgrade to buying this lens and selling the 18-70g DX?
I have been hoping that a new version of an 18-70 2.8g or similar range would come out.

The 16-35 f4 VR sounds interesting but the range is shorter then I would like.

Any free advice greatly appreciated
