Re: f/2.8 is very useful

Even for outdoors - an extra stop can easily give you another hour of
shooting in the late afternoon, or better shots on an overcast day.
With a faster lens you have the option of lower ISO (important for me
since I rarely have time to PP), or the same ISO and faster shutter -
and both are very good options to have. Obviously there are also the
issues of price and weight to consider.... In any case I find myself
often shooting wide open for the reasons above (and when the
composition justifies low DOF of course...)

Not to mention being helpful during use of a polarizer that can lose you a stop.
