18mm f2 vs 18mm f1.4

Have the f2. Love it for the weight but at times I do find the AF slow (esp in afc), or hunting in dark areas. Also has a bit of muddiness in image quality but generally OK for street photography. I don’t shoot at f2 all the time unless needed in low light or for some bokeh.

I recently tried the 1.4 (which I shouldn’t have) however it’s almost triple the weight and brings so much bulk for street photography. However the sharpness when zooming into the details, quiet and confident AF and image quality is just so good. Still thinking about it after so long. Can someone talk me out of getting it? 😂
