Nikon 14mm f/2.8 vs Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 Zoom

I'm trying to cut down the weight of my camera backpack, as I carry a lot of lenses.

I noticed that I love to use my Nikon 14-24mm zoom lens, but I ONLY use it at 14mm, never at any other focal length. The Nikon 14-24mm is very large and heavy, and since I'm basically using it as a prime lens, I figured I should replace it with the Nikon 14mm.

Without first renting a 14mm, how do I know if it is as good as the 14-24mm at 14mm?

I'm talking about these lenses specifically (full names below):

- NIKON 14mm f/2.8D ED AF Ultra Wide-Angle Nikkor Lens

- Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Nikkor Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Any tips would be appreciated.
