45mm Oly VS 50mm FD Lens a $250 difference. Is it worth it????

They were shot on the OM-D EM-5 and I used Fine JPEG.
200ISO
60th
1.8

Both lenses stop down to 1.8 though it is not a true 1.8 on the FD due to the converter.
I used manual focus on both.

After seeing these it makes me question if it's worth keeping my new 45mm OLY. I got my used lens for $288

The 50mm FD goes for $50 + converter but I got mine for free from a friend.

Other then the Auto Foucs I'm not seeing a reason to keep my 45mm OLY
