Amid the 33 & 35 f1.4s, what of the 35 f2?

The high performing 33 f1.4 is out and well-received. Most comparisons I've seen pit the 33 against the 35 f1.4, and there doesn't seem to be a clear winner.
I am wondering where all this leaves the humble 35 f2. Do those who mostly use the f2 want to upgrade to any of the f1.4s?
I would get the 33, but it's size is a put-off, and I really like the discreet street work that I am able to do with the f2.
The 35 f1.4 is ideally sized. But there's that slow and noisy AF, and the front end moves. These are a put-off for me, and I feel quite happy with the f2 on those counts. I feel, however, that I need that f1.4 aperture for street portraits.
Are there others who are revisiting their choice or the f2, in light of the fact that we now have 3 lenses to choose from?
Thanks
