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 am not sure what makes "critical focus" in your book. I settle for the level of focus I get from my AF lenses. MF lenses would mean a lot of my photos wouldn't have been taken.

If it's a critical shot where point of focus and critical focus is important, I eschew AF. Typical examples would be landscapes.

You cannot be more wrong. Many landscape shots do not use AF because DOF covers infinity and AF is not necessary.
