So much happens after sunset that f/5.6 can often prove useless in so many settings. Go with f/2.8.

After sunset, even an f2.8 will struggle.

Go for an f1.4, or faster, prime to augment whatever convenience lens… I mean… zoom lens one might choose.

In my experience, as long you're willing to push it to ISO 6400 (and you have to be, at night), f/2.8 is usually enough to take people shots at 1/40 or faster if you have some light (street light, etc.). At the same setting, f/5.6 is 1/10.
