canon 50mm 1.8 or 40mm 2.8

Recently I got EOS 700D with 18-55 lens. Aperture only 3.5 to 5.6. this is not good for night shoot.
I need some wide aperture lens and want to choose between Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens.
So friends, please let me know what should be best choice for my purpose.

get 50mm 1.8 ...there is lot of difference between 1.8 and 2.8 optically
thanks! in fact wide aperture helps a lot in night shooting, But some of the review says 50mm stm 1.4 build quality not good as 40 mm lens. I am not sure..thats why I am asking...

When weighing things side by side, one may out weigh the other one, that doesn't mean it's not good.
BTW, add 24mm f/2.8 STM in the mix for more confusion ;) it would give wider view.

That's a good suggestion, thank you.
