What is the forum consensus about Z 24-70 f4 vs 24-70 f2.8

I know this has been discussed in different YT videos, forums, review sites. But I am not after just corner sharpness(my copy of 24-70 f4 is plenty sharp at the corners), but overall IQ, micro contrast, pop, color, bokeh quality, etc. It is hard to gauge in videos or web sized pictures.

Any thought? If anyone has conducted a side by side test and tell a difference looking at the picture .. like pictures from f2.8 jumps at you vs f4 is like 2D.

Also, is there any benefit going 2.8 w/o VR vs f4 with VR for any low light situation?

Wondering why Nikon would make two lenses with so close picture quality and one costs 2 times the other.

Appreciate any feedback
