Olympus 25mm side by side size compare?

As right now I'm having really enjoyable time shooting this Pen F (the original 35mm film version) half-frame (those 72 frames keeps going and going!), I'm thinking getting a wider than the 38mm (for those time i'm in a restaurant shooting across the table at my wife or when i want some more environment around the subject in the picture), naturally I think I'll settle with 25mm (f4/f2.8)

Before I make further decision may I request the esteem members around here to show me a picture of both the f4 and f2.8 version side by side? I have seen picture of them both separately in this forum, but is a little difficult to visually gauge the size different. I understand image quality wise this two version are both very good, and with my skill set either would work just fine I suppose, i'm leaning towards the 2.8 as it give 1 stop more light, so size of that two is the final inquiry I have.

as usual, many thanks for any comments!

I assume you're talking about Pen F lenses? You didn't specify which Olympus half frame you were talking about =P
