keep 35mm 1.4 in my arsenal if I have a "Holy Trio"?

I'm debating on whether or not I should continue to keep my sony 35mm f/1.4 lens. I currently own that lens and the 16-35 2.8 gm, 28-75 2.8, and 70-180 2.8 lenses paired with the Sony A7III. I'm more of a casual photo/gear enthusiast. I use to go solo shooting more but now I have my wife and friends when I go out; I usually only take one lens with me depending on the situation.

I find myself with the following scenarios:

Indoors - 16-35 2.8 gm

general walk around - 28-75 2.8

shooting people/animals specifically - 70-180 2.8

This leaves me with not much scenarios with taking the 35mm out. I really like the 35mm focal length and have been shooting with a 35mm lens long before I owned the A7 system, but now I have multiple lenses overlapping this focal length. The advantage of f/1.4 makes it worth owning but the A7III has such good low light abilities that I feel like f/2.8 is sufficient most of the times.

The problem is the resale value of the sony 35mm 1.4 is very bad. I'm selling not because I need a certain amount of cash but because I feel like it's never going to leave my cabinet. That being said if I can only sell it for what bhphoto/adorama is willing to offer, I'm thinking I might as well keep it.

Do folks with the holy trio or some variety of it find a need for primes?
