I'm debating buying the 14mm f2.8, which has gotten very solid reviews and all the pictures I've seen from this lens are gorgeous. However, I'm hesitating to buy with the new 16mm f1.4 hopefully coming out soon. Does anyone have experience with a focal length similar to the 16mm? Other than the faster aperture, what would be the benefit to a lens like this? The lens would be used for lots of landscapes/architecture/some street photography.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

If you like 14mm a lot and can live with f/2.8, the 14mm has a lot to offer, especially smaller size.

In my case I decided to get a 10-24 over the 14 due to being able to go wider, the zoom, and OIS.

So for me, the 16mm is a very tempting addition when I need to go wider and fast and presumably even better IQ.
