Sigma 19mm f2.8 or Panasonic 25mm f1.7 ?

I can get a used Sigma 19mm for $100 and the Panasonic goes for $160 where I live.

When I peep around my shots with my 14-42mm Panasonic kit lens, I find out that I use it more around 14mm to 20mm but then the 25mm has that extra F-Stop.

I am mostly shooting outdoors (subjects more than landscapes), sometimes in shaded areas like forests or so.

Is the extra F-Stop worth having a narrower field of view and $60 more?

Which one in your opinion has the better IQ?

And lastly, not so important, which one has the quicker/better AF?

Thanks a lot in advance!
