Well the 16 f/1.4 is definitely better, but not by a mile.

Hmm, care to elaborate what do you find "definitely better" here?

As I see it here, f/2.8 is sharper across the frame - except for the very bottom of the images, where it is clearly the opposite, so I even suspect focus point/distance was not the same, unfortunately.

... and the exposure isn't quite the same either.

That said, at my house I see a toss up in the center...

f/1.4 (L), f/2.8 (R)

...but around the periphery the f/1.4 shows a mostly small, but noticeable advantage...

f/1.4 (L), f/2.8 (R) lower edge

f/1.4 (L), f/2.8 (R) upper left

f/1.4 (L), f/2.8 (R) upper right
