85033D or 85033E for our HP8753D VNA

I am in the need for a 3.5mm cal kit for our 8753D and I am hesitating whether I should get a new (or used) 85033E (which is not supported in the VNA - need cal coeffs to be added manually) or try to find a used 85033D from some reputed second hand dealer. How much would be wise to spend on a used 85033D with one year warranty and valid Keysight cal? Or is it worth going for the 85033E? I read somewhere that the D and E uses the same cal coeffs, does that mean that I could calibrate using a 85033E kit using the pre-defined 85033D cal set already in our VNA?
