I am thinking about put it on ebay. It's overlap with my other lens. But somehow I feel reluctant let it go.

Good photography oppotunities in life are too few and far between to use awkward lenses.

If you value your photography, use AF lenses.

That's not really true - if you value critical focus, manually focus.

I love AF lenses and use them when I can, but some of my best lenses are MF only. And some of my best cameras are not capable of AF. Honestly, for the work I value the most I'm usually not shooting with AF.

Good point.

If it's a critical shot where point of focus and critical focus is important, I eschew AF. Typical examples would be landscapes. Same goes for macro work. Since that's most of what I do, I don't really need AF for most of what I do.

As far as these images in the thread go, I don't get it. Are these considered good examples? I'm not seeing it.
