Question about 24mm prime lens comparison

I've found that 24mm is a good field of view for my needs but I noticed two prime canon lenses 24mm/f1.4 and 24mm/f2.8. One is $130, one is $1550! What am I missing that the latter lens is $1420 better? Is it just that 1.4 more f stop?

Here's the amazon links:
