It is a conundrum. Both are wide angle, although the 14 is significantly wider. I have used both equivalents with film. The 16 is much easier to use without getting tilts and perspective distortions.

That's one of the reasons I use wide angle. I like to distort perspective for artistic reasons. For my personal use that gives the advantage to the 14mm.

The biggest single advantage of the 16mm IMO is the fast aperture, and that is something that appeals. I'll be tempted to buy that too but I suspect the price will put me off.
