Also think about that if SHTF happens, you may want both HF and 2m at the same time. with the 817 you get one or the other and you have to switch back and forth between antennas modes and bands.
Good points, and I have several HTs to cover that. The 818 is my only HF for the moment, but I'm sure I'll end up with more.
