The 14/2.8 has three big advantages over the 15/4.

2) Can use filters and comes with nice hood
As has been pointed out, the DA15 actually has the advantage here:

1) It CAN use filters, and they're the same one you can use on the other limited lenses. This means fewer filters to carry around.

2) It DOES have a lens hood, which is built in. No plastic bayonet fittings to worry about breaking. No chance of loosing the hood. Way more compact and easy to deal with. Much faster to deploy.
