Should I sell my AFD 180 2.8

Yep, I'm thinking of selling my AFD 180 2.8. Reason: I just don't use it that much even though I recognize it to be a fine lens... perhaps my best. When I use it magic often happens and I come home with something I really like.

The trouble is I just don't take it out much and (I think) I need something more versitile. Perhaps the 70-300VR which has gotten great reviews here and elsewhere. It certainly would be more versitile. Both lenses are about the same weight and size so no advantage there to either one.

I enjoy photographing my very active dogs (running in an open field), and more sedate things like nature and close-ups of things in nature.

Anybody out there familiar with both lenses? Your comments are most appreciated. Thanks.
