Well basically, it has better glass, better coatings, better AF motor. Zeiss lenses were never cheap and they retain their value over time. As far as value is concerned, is it that much better for the money you pay? The perception of 'value' is very subjective, some people would pay a lot for a smidgen of improvement and some won't.
