Only if you have a recurring problem with flare while shooting in to the
sun (which can be avoided with judicious use of a lenshood) and you don't
like the flare (personal taste). Otherwise, I don't think there is any
discernable difference to the avg. user like you and me. If you're doing
enlargments or care of every bit of sharpness for critical work, then MC
will/might help. Otherwise, you're OK.
The other irrational reason to get MC versions would be lust, pure and
simple, for ever more Zuikos.... ;-)
