This is very straightforward.  The F2.8 lens can do things the F4 can't.  For example, whatever you shoot and on whatever body, the F2.8 will keep going later into the evening than the F4 will.  And that is not even beginning to talk about adding teleconverters.  The only reasons to consider the F4 over the F2.8 would be because you just don't want a lens that big, or because you can't afford it.  And this comes from someone who owns the F4 and is happy with it.
