Any comments about Sigma 28mm F/2.8?

I have this Sigma 28mm f/2.8 Mini-Wide Multicoated K mount lens (without "A" setting). It looks and feels quite good to excellent. However, my test shots (shot before I sent my camera for a repair) suggests it has no advantage in resolution, color rendition and flare over my Sigma 17-70mm zoom used at that focal length. Unfortunately, all the shots include mostly far away subjects and I cannot re-test it for, say, portraits at the moment.
I am in the process of buying a pricy lens and I need funds. Should I just sell it (locally) or I may have a better use of it? Anyone with experince with this particular one? Will I miss it if I sell it now?
