The other differences are fairly negligible. IS is useful-- enough for the big price difference? An individual question, that is.

The old 28mm f2.8 has pretty crappy optics (very high CA for a prime, for instance). The new one is vastly superior (much better CA correction, better contrast).

The old one had very few optical elements, the new one is a more complex and refined design. This regrettably has driven the price up...
