I would rather spend the 400 plus difference on additional glass.
I'm inclined to agree Dave. I tried the new f2.8 7-14 back to back with my old f4 in a quick test outside a shop, and reckoned the corners were softer generally on the f2.8. Wielding the old beastie also creates a sense of occasion too!
