I want the extra f stops so I'm going to buy this lens. The question is: what to do with my 60mm lens. Almost new, where is best place to sell @ a fair price. And what would a fair price be in your opinion? Thanks.

Once you get 56 the 60 become a dead weight as the 56 is better in every way. A $350 would be a reasonable price, but there are plenty of people like you wanting to sell and only few wanting to buy the 60.

Unless you want close focusing ability.

Yep. A close-up lens is great for tight shots of small pets like cats and little dogs. A regular short tele just won't work, you can't get close enough. And as yet, there is no long tele for the X-system other than the zoom.

Not because I think they are good, but because I would like to improve (feel free to provide me with feedback):
