Already Have XF 18-55mm, Should I Keep New XC 16-50mm?

I recently purchased an X-T20 that came with an XC 16-50mm (OIS II) kit lens. I also purchased an XF 18-55mm (new) for about $300 last month, with the intention of selling the XC lens.

On ebay, a new XC 16-50mm seems to be selling for about $135, so I am wondering if it makes sense to hang onto it. It is very light, and I think it would be useful for landscapes when hiking, etc. I have read many reviews about each lens, and I am sure the XF is a better lens overall, but the XC has a bit wider view and I believe it can also be used for some limited macro work.

Getting $135 is better than nothing, but maybe I can get more that $135 worth of value from the XC.

I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
