Nikon 14-24mm/2.8 vs 16-35mm/4 VR (yep - another thread)

I'm looking at a used Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ($900). I already have a Nikon 16-35MM VR. I often find myself shooting at 16mm with my back against the wall, and invariably there's something (immovable) in the frame that's a deal-killer - mainly in interior real estate shots. Moving closer to the subject is not an option.... OR if I could just bring in just a bit more left & right of the subject in exterior shots, it would be a great image.

My question (to those who have used both lenses): how significant is the extra 2MM in the 14-24MM at the low end? How often has it saved the day for you?

Thanks in advance...
