ZD 50-200mm SWD repair

Just got a quote to repair my well used ZD 50-200mm SWD, $1,323 AUD (~$1,000 USD).  That's more than they are going for on fleebay.  Oly hospital wants to replace the SWD motor but AF was fine.  It's the aperture that wasn't closing resulting in overexposure.  I've had the SWD motor replaced before.  I use the lens on an E-M1 with an adapter.  What do you think?  Is the 50-200mm that good that I should repair it or should I sell it for parts and get a M.ZD 300mm PRO, if the missus let's me?
