XF 16mm f1.4 vs f2.8?

How do you think the 16mm f2.8 will be in terms of IQ compared to the actual f1.4?

For now I could resume like this:

Advantage f1.4:

-2 more stops meaning better for low light

-Better soft bokeh

-Sharpness wide open specially with close subjects (if the 16f2.8 will use the same technique as the 23f2)

Advantage f2.8:

-Size and weight obviously making it street and hiking friendly, I never used a 16mm f1.4 but given its size and weight I think people are a bit annoyed after some walking or hiking.

-Price, probably 1/2 the price of the f1.4
