Not really much to say here, you just have to decide what is more important.

One is a stop faster, but is much larger and heavier - plus it adds an adapter

The other is small, light, and no adapter, but is a stop slower.

Do you value max aperture or size and weight more? That's the decision to make. We can't make it for you.

Personally I favor the weight and went with RF f4.

I very seldom use f/2.8 in my studio or shooting boats at sea. I did buy the RF70-200 f/2.8 but the f/4 would have been more practical.
I would choose the f4 and buy a 85 f/1.2 for the dreamy shots.
