In doubt help me choose 10-24mm f4 or 14mm f2.8

I want to buy a wide angle lens to complement my X-T1.
The choice of course is choosing out of the 14mm f2.8 or the new 10-24mm f4.0
Both lenses have their advantages and disadvantages and now I am in doubt which one to choose.

The 14mm Pro's:
- Small
- Less weight
- Fast(er) aperture
- Aperture ring

The 14mm cons
- Fixed focal lenght

The 10-24mm Pro's
- Zooms from 10 to 24mm
- Image stabilazation
- More versatile in its use

The 10-24mm Cons:
- Heavy
- Big
- No Aperture ring
- A little bit more expensive
- Not as fast aperture speed
I am already owning the 23mm.

What would you choose and why. The lens will be used mostly for landscape photography.
